NLP’s John Silva gives Offspring tips on fighting ‘fake news’

NLP in the News

John Silva, the News Literacy Project’s director of education, was recently interviewed by Offspring, Lifehacker’s parenting vertical, about what parents can do to spot and fight “fake news.”

Silva told writer Leigh Anderson that parents should participate in lateral reading (real-time fact-checking from other news sites) with their children and make sure that the news their kids consume is fair and balanced.

He also urged parents to teach their children the structural fundamentals of media and encourage them to “get your news from news organizations.”
