Slate joins the News Literacy Project


Slate has joined the News Literacy Project as a participating news organization, becoming the first online news provider to join the effort to help middle school and high school students become smarter and more frequent consumers and creators of credible information.

“The News Literacy Project has a mission that Slate is very pleased to support,” said John Alderman, publisher of the Slate Group. “As the media landscape multiplies in size and complexity, helping students navigate and vet information sources is more vital than ever.”

Slate is an award-winning, Web-based daily magazine. Founded in 1996, the general-interest publication offers analysis and commentary about politics, news, and culture. It prides itself on a strong editorial voice and witty take on current events. The site, which is owned by The Washington Post Co., does not charge for access and is supported by advertising revenue.
