With the 2022 midterm elections right around the corner, it’s important that voters like you get the facts you need to make informed decisions before heading to the polls.
MediaWise, the digital media literacy initiative of the nonprofit Poynter Institute, has teamed up with AARP to empower citizens with media literacy tips and voting resources.
MediaWise Director Alex Mahadevan will teach you how to spot false or misleading social media posts, videos and images; what algorithms are and how they work; and show you tools that professional journalists and fact-checkers use to fight for truth and democracy. PolitiFact Managing Editor Katie Sanders will conclude this program with a summary of election issues to watch out for — and the opportunity to ask a fact-checker anything.
You’ll leave this program feeling prepared and confident that when you cast your vote Nov. 8, you’ll have access to the facts you need to make informed decisions with confidence.
