How do you know if something you see or hear on social media is true?

Erin McNeill founded Media Literacy Now, which prepares young people to be thoughtful, safe, and effective consumers and creators of media in the digital age.

On the latest episode of the National Press Club's podcast, Update-1, McNeill and Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Irv Chapman discuss her organization's effort to make media literacy a part of K-12 curricula across the country to provide students with the skills necessary to tell the difference between fact and fiction.

Update-1 is produced by Mike Hempen. The podcast can be heard here on the Club website or on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.
