Aga Khan University and US Embassy create media literacy video focusing on discerning fake news
Misinformation has become a core part of the news cycle and remains a leading area of concern across independent, private, and public organizations. Content from non-credible news sites, paid bloggers, and sophisticated videos masquerading as legitimate newscasts has found fertile ground in the social media scene.
The Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media and Communications and the US Embassy Kenya created a video animation, designed to help audiences better understand how news stories are created, and how to discern fake news.
The three-part video aims to educate audiences on why, when it comes to information sharing, they should all stop, reflect and verify. The video comes at a time when identifying and stopping the spread of misinformation is vital to ensure that credible news sources maintain levels of trust.
