Media Literacy emerges in the Schools as an anecdote to Fake News

The Spokesman-Review carried two articles about Media Literacy and Digital Citizenship in the last week. These are topics central to the Mission of the Northwest Alliance for Responsible Media.  One article was titled “Teaching Fact from Fiction amid fake news: Lawmakers continue to push for increased literacy efforts in schools following 2016 elections”.  The other article is titled “Media literacy efforts grow in nation’s schools.” Here are the URLs:

Both mention the media literacy work going on in theState of Washington and part of the reason for the NW-ARM.
