Reuters’ Pavritha George recently visited an Arlington, Virginia, high school where seniors are learning how to discern fact from fiction by using NLP’s Checkology® virtual classroom.

NLP founder and CEO Alan C. Miller was also interviewed for George’s report and explained why the need for news literacy is particularly important today.

“This is an equivalent of a public health crisis, and it’s been brewing more beneath the surface for a long time now,” he said.
