“News Literacy is defined as the development of critical thinking skills applied to judge the reliability and credibility of information, whether it comes via print, radio, television or the Internet.
The term News Literacy is generally associated with schools of communication and journalism rather than pedagogical schools. Some view it as a sub-sector of the Media and Information Literacy (MIL) field; others as a distinct and unique entity.”
“Evaluating information sources requires skills and critical thinking and is an educational responsibility.
Separating fact from opinion, evaluating text and image for bias, and constructing and deconstructing a text based on principles of logic are teachable skills.”
