Just the Facts Ma’am: News Literacy in a Connected World

How reliable is the news? How can we tell sensationalism from fact?

Our perspective on important events is greatly influenced by the news, but the news isn’t necessarily unbiased. And with “news” everywhere – TV, radio, print, facebook, twitter, Google news – how can we tell what is fact and what just keeps us sharing, clicking, and tuned in?

Students, faculty, and staff join the librarians from Noon to 1:00pm on Tuesday, April 28, 2015
