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?
