For the final quiz, you'll be asked to deconstruct a video news piece, and evaluate one of it's sources.

General News Literacy Discussions

Lies, Damn Lies and Viral Content

Craig Silverman's work on debunking viral information has been an important tool for News Literacy teachers.

Now he has published this beefy report on the Tow Center's website, one which I hope we can read and then discuss through this forum, creating some useful teaching tools around it.

As we do, I'd like to sound my now-standard warning: News Literacy, to be useful and to be heard, is consumer protection and not media criticism, of which there is a surfeit.
