Be a better news hound

Thursday, April 8, 2021 by Tai Moses

There’s never been so many news outlets or so many ways to consume the news. But how can we tell if the news we’re reading, watching or listening to is accurate? How can we learn to become better consumers of news? An upcoming panel presentation hosted by Common Ground for Texans explores this timely topic. Panelists Tom Mast of the Braver Angels Central Texas Media Action Group and Natalie Stroud, director of UT-Austin’s Center for Media Engagement, will explain how to tell if the news you are reading is “verifiable, truthful and accurate” and discuss how to become advocates for media accuracy. The event includes several short video clips on media literacy and framing, followed by an audience dialogue. Saturday, April 17, 2-3:30 p.m. Via Zoom.
