In an op-ed for The State Journal-Register in Springfield, Ill., NLP’s Peter Adams discusses the importance of news literacy and provides tips to fight “fake news.”
“To be meaningfully engaged with the world around us, we must be informed,” he writes. “But what does that mean in an age of information overload in which so much ‘content’ isn’t what it appears to be? How, in other words, can we know what to believe?”
Adams says that learning these skills and approaches can go a long way toward ensuring a more credible, engaged and accurate information landscape in 2018.
