Summary

Calls for news literacy have surged in recent months. As misinformation and "fake news" swirl around the internet, news literacy is viewed by many as the antidote. Indeed, the ability to analyze news content is vital to preserving democratic practices. In this introductory text, Ashley argues for the importance of news literacy to democratic life and advances an evidence-based argument that critical contexts regarding news media structures and institutions should be central to news literacy education. In addition to explaining concepts and policies, case studies and examples from the contemporary and historical news environment are used to illustrate the concepts.
