National News Literacy Week draws strong media coverage

NLP in the News


NLP partnered with The E.W. Scripps Company on the first National News Literacy Week (Jan. 27-31). The initiative brought awareness to the need for news literacy education and provided students, educators and the public with tools, tips and resources for becoming news-literate. The week also generated robust news media coverage for NLP, Scripps and news literacy in general, including the following:

To keep our democracy strong, we need to restore trust in news media

Once trust is gone, it’s tough to regain. But it’s critical that we all work to restore it. That’s because public trust and a news media industry that does its job well go hand in hand in protecting our democracy. That’s why my organization, the News Literacy Project (along with The E.W. Scripps Company), is focusing on trust in newsrooms and news coverage during National News Literacy Week.
