Bloomberg Joins the News Literacy Project

Bloomberg has joined the News Literacy Project as a participant, becoming the 15th news organization to enlist in the growing national effort to help middle school and high school students sort fact from fiction in a digital world.

“We believe in the future of fact-driven news in a world where people are bombarded with information,” said Mike Tackett, Bloomberg’s Washington bureau chief and managing editor. “This program is training a new generation of students to appreciate quality journalism and consume and create credible information.”

Bloomberg, which is headquartered in New York City and has bureaus worldwide, joins The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, the Associated Press, CNN, NPR, ABC News, NBC News, CBS’ “60 Minutes,” the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, ProPublica, Slate and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting as a participating news organization.  More than 150 journalists have enrolled in the News Literacy Project’s online directory.
