Do You Have a Nose for News?

You Can Follow News Clues, with your own Media Detective Kit!

It can be hard to separate fact from fiction online, especially when you’re connected to every piece of information in the world, at once.

Media Detective is here to help you step into your role as a news sleuth!

Media and news literacy is one of those skills that *everyone* benefits from learning. It's a skillset that helps you sort fact from fiction, stop the spread of misinformation, and think more critically overall.

But it can be overwhelming and intimidating: 

  • Where do I start, when I'm connected to every available piece of news and information in the world, constantly? 
  • What's a deepfake? Do those really exist? 
  • All the news seems the same to me, are they really biased? 
  • My parents only put on one news station in the house, so that’s the one I trust. Is that wrong?
  • I want to hear all the opinions and make up my own mind. Where's the "just-the-facts" reporting? 

You’ll get all of these answers inside your Media Detective Kit!

I built my Media Detective Kit the long way: by studying and analyzing hundreds of sources for my history degrees. Luckily, you don’t have to spend years to learn how to follow news clues! 

Getting your Media Detective Kit and becoming a Media Detective will help you become a savvy news-reader, ready to stop:

internet trolls,
outright liars,
propagandists, and

in their tracks, in the ongoing cosmic battle of truth versus lies!

You’ll learn how to:
  • fact-check what you read, see, and hear in the news
  • become a trusted and reliable source of info for all things current events
  • sharpen your BS-detector so that you never share lies, amplify bad actors, or outrage share again
  • have a healthier, more critical relationship with the new so that you engage with it, rather than being led by it.
When you become a Media Detective, you will always fall on the side of truth, feel confident about what you are reading and sharing, and be a life-long news detective!
Are you ready to step into these detective shoes?
