Her column underscores the critical need for the public to seek out credible information to assure the health of America’s democracy.
“Without a well-informed public, you get what we have: a culture that rewards ignorance and treats discourse as a blood sport,” Parker wrote. “News literacy programs provide some hope at least for a more sophisticated consumer. It’s a modest start, but learning to read critically is no less important than reading itself.”
