Articles/videos/podcasts about truth, research, or information?

Restructuring my college course on information literacy to make it more interesting and relevant to students. I'm looking for really interesting resources related to topics in information: intellectual freedom, authority as a social construct, issues with bias and objectivity, information as a commodity, metadata, primary source research, research as the quest for truth, remix culture/creative commons, etc.

I'm a librarian who teaches. I'm trying to get away from a "library skills" course and get at the real core nuggets of the world of information--what makes my field interesting and worth learning about. Non-academic, creative, entertaining sources greatly encouraged. This recent bit on Radiolab is a great example of what I'm looking for.

Morris is a great starting point. In fact, you could probably devote your whole course to his works. Have you seen The Thin Blue Line?
