Daily Herald lists NLP as a resource for spotting fake news

The Daily Herald, which covers eight suburban Chicago counties, published a column by Jim Baumann, vice president and managing editor, in which he discussed misinformation frequently found online and the tools available to help news consumers become more astute. He listed the News Literacy Project as a resource for both teachers and the general public.

His column includes examples of fake social media content, such as manipulated photos, provided by Peter Adams, NLP’s senior vice president for educational programs.
