Informed World | The citizen’s guide to media literacy – John Bell, Vinita Srivastava, Sam Grogg, Sara DeWitt
Who can you trust in the We Media landscape? Where’s the line between commerce and information? No more is it a question of parsing the biases of individual media outlets: It’s time to define a global media-education agenda so everyone can understand how today’s media works, and how best to use it. Our goal: Create a set of guidelines for media literacy today.
