NLP’s Miriam Romais and KRFC’s ‘Community @ Work’ talk news literacy

NLP in the News


At the start of the year, Miriam Romais, NLP’s senior manager of educator engagement, was interviewed by Colorado radio station, KRFC- ‘Community @ Work’ show. The interview covered news literacy broadly, the work being done at NLP, and what steps people can take to become more news literate.

When asked if a lack of news literacy was detrimental to America’s democracy, Romais responded, “I think it is indeed a threat. It’s important to note, everything that we see, that we read, that we hear, is going to affect our thoughts and how we think about things, and therefore our behaviors and our actions. If we’re basing our decisions on faulty information, that can ultimately have adverse effects on our lives. Being able to discern fact from opinion and opinion from fiction is critical because we are living in the most complex information landscape that has ever existed.”
