New "News Literacy" Blog
A campaign has been launched to improve "news literacy" levels amongst America's citizens. The Lovejoy Journalism and News Literacy Blog aims to counteract spreading "news illiteracy", which is considered as the "real" and "hidden" threat to journalism and ultimately democracy in the current climate of proliferating news sources. The blog joins two other "news literacy" initiatives--which will be the subjects of a session at NCTE 2009 in Philadelphia.
