The New York Times:
Where The Truth Ends


News literacy has become an issue of the utmost importance. Let’s aim to give people the skills they need to discern fact from fiction. 

In the state of the media today, we are bombared 24/7 with information- real and false. That in and of itself is a problem. However, the serious issue begins when users do not know what is an opinion and what is fact. Think of attacks or protests, shootings or crimes, that have been committed in the name of a belief.
To them, that belief is a fact- and that, is the big issue we are faced with today.

The first step is to teach people the difference between news and opinion. This way, they can make informed decisions based on what they read, see, and hear.
