It also aims to inspire news consumers, educators, and students to practice news literacy and to strengthen trust in news media by reinforcing the role of credible journalism.
National News Literacy Week will take place January 24-28, 2022, and will offer a variety of ways for educators and students and the general public to get involved, virtually or in person."

Is That a Fact?
News Literacy Project's podcast invites listeners to better understand how false information begins.
From the New Literacy Project:
"For the second season of Is that a fact?, we’re exploring the origins of false narratives and the harm they cause. We know that sharing misinformation is misleading and leaves people poorly informed, but we wanted to go deeper and explore how fictional information starts and then bubbles to the surface to misdirect the country’s civic and cultural discourse. Listen this season as we explore false narratives related to the country’s most important issues and events, including the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, school shootings, immigration, political parties and more."
