We are pleased to join 20+ journalism organizations in supporting National News Literacy Week in the United States, presented Jan. 24–28 by the News Literacy Project and The E.W. Scripps Company. News literacy is an urgent and essential life skill. Credible, standards-based news outlets play an important role in helping the public recognize what news and information to trust.
