Celebrate Media Literacy Week......

...By taking a News Literacy Moment!

Distinguishing between News, Analysis and Opinion is something most people find difficult at first, but after learning the difference, it's a lot easier to spot.

News is what happened. It presents facts to the public so they can decide for themselves the meaning of events.

Analysis is an expert assessment. Analysis writers, therefore, have experience and knowledge which they use to interpret a matter. They provide the reader with facts and evidence. They do not include their own opinion.

Opinion is what someone thinks happened. An Opinion article is an interpretation of an event or events. While an Opinion article voices a point of view, it must not misrepresent other points of view.

Readers must know what they are reading. They must not think they are reading news when they have an Analysis or Opinion article in front of them. Therefore, Opinion and Analysis should be clearly labeled as such.
