NLP Partners With National Writing Project for News Literacy Webinar Series

Peter Adams, NLP's senior vice president for educational programs, moderated a special conversation with national political reporters Matea Gold and Abby Phillip from The Washington Post.

Gold and Phillip offered their insights on examples of rumors and misinformation in the 2016 campaign, discussed the competing issues and agendas they must navigate in their reporting, and chatted with students and educators about the active role young people can play as consumers and creators of news and information about political issues. The hangout was part of a special series on "Building News Literacy, Critical Media Skills, and Political Awareness Today" produced in connection to Letters to the Next President 2.0
