Media Literacy: News Literacy

This guide provides an overview of media literacy topics.

News Literacy

News literacy is a part of media literacy and includes having the critical thinking skills for evaluating (or judging/analyzing) the reliability and credibility of news sources AND new forms of information (that are often mistaken for journalism).

News literacy can help us recognize the difference between fact and rumor, news and advertising, news and opinion, and bias and fairness.
