Media Coverage


NLP founder and CEO, Alan Miller, was Brian Stelter’s guest on the Jan. 24 segment of his Reliable Sources podcast. In his Jan. 23 newsletter, Stelter, CNN’s chief media correspondent and host of the Sunday show Reliable Sources, described their conversation:

“On this week’s Reliable Sources podcast, News Literacy Project founder and CEO Alan Miller previews the first-ever National News Literacy Week — starting Jan. 27 — and a new partnership with Scripps’ local TV stations.

“Miller told me about his efforts to make people part of the ‘information solution.’ While the News Literacy Project focuses on middle and high school programs, the public awareness campaign with Scripps will give the general public ‘some tools and resources to become more news-literate,’ he said. We also discussed between skepticism and cynicism; the impact of digital disinformation; why the term ‘fake news’ is an oxymoron,’ and more.”
