Why We All Need Media Literacy

While the world deals with COVID-19, we've also seen a "pandemic" of fake news and misinformation. So on today's show, we look at why media literacy is important to combat this. First, we look at the role of educators in teaching media literacy. Then, we talk about how seniors can empower themselves against fake news. Finally, we look at how media organisations can regain the trust they seem to be losing from the audiences.
