The critical media literacy seeks the way to the justice, democracy and training citizens in a world which is turning into global and net era so it necessitates a condition to teach our students critical and transformative pedagogy to make them perceive their roles as justice followers and global citizens. It appears that people should take part in all activities in their lives to inspect and control the national and international governments’ decisions and their behavior so if we don’t have people engaged in politics, the concept of democracy process will be weaker in the western societies. Although the most important point in the critical media literacy is to expose the students with media contents, people are no more eager in ideological and political knowledge, so it deems we are not supposed to achieve the actual targets of CML.
This paper is intended to represent a critical introduction to the critical media literacy education on the basis of documentary-library study.
