CJR cites NLP lesson on decision-making

NLP in the News

The Columbia Journalism Review describes how news roundups can be an important part of a varied media diet and discusses the relevance of a News Literacy Project lesson:

“Learning what goes into a news roundup is reminiscent of a lesson called ‘The Page One Meeting’ created by the News Literacy Project, where students get a chance to play the role of editor and weigh the decisions that go into selecting which stories go on page one of a print newspaper, or the homepage of a news website. What are the skills necessary to make these decisions? Who should we trust to exercise them? Can we, as news consumers, develop them for ourselves?”
