NLP in the News


In an interview with CapRadio’s Insight program, John Silva, NLP’s senior director of professional learning, discussed how to navigate the misinformation swirling around Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Insight provides background and understanding on breaking news, big events, politics and culture in the Sacramento region and beyond.

“The first thing we have to do is take a step back and just pause how we’re scrolling through information,” Silva explained. “We have to acknowledge our role in the spread of misinformation. So much of what gets shared is not because of the sources that created it and put it out there, it’s us – we’re amplifying it.”
