NBC News joins the News Literacy Project


NBC News has joined the News Literacy Project as a participating news organization, becoming the third major television network to enroll in the national effort to help middle school and high school students discern fact from fiction in the digital age.

“The mission of the News Literacy Project is admirable and incredibly timely,” said NBC News President Steve Capus. “We are happy to be part of the program, and to help students navigate what has become a very crowded landscape.  It’s more important than ever to be able to differentiate and identify credible sources of news and information.”

NBC is the 10th news organization to enlist with NLP. It joins The New York Times, ABC News, USA Today, CBS’s 60 Minutes, The Washington Post, CNN, NPR, The Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times in supporting the News Literacy Project.
