Aware of the problems of unreliable news but not sure of how to effectively vet the sources you see? New York Public Radio’s On the Media series has produced a number of ‘Breaking News Consumer’s Handbook’ audio interviews with experts that we in Ramsey Library recommend for gaining insight into critically thinking about the many excited reports of dire happenings from the media.
