We live in a world full of disinformation, misinformation, and fake news that makes it difficult to discern fact from fiction. With news breaking minute-by-minute, the ability to explore multiple perspectives, compare and contrast an issue over time, and evaluate how various media outlets cover the same issue from different parts of the U.S. are increasingly essential elements in the development of critical thinking and information literacy skills.
