I've long supported the work MediaSmarts is doing and see this as a logical continuation. They're partnered with Poynter to create a Canadian teen fact-checkjing network. "Through short videos that will resonate with their peer group, teen fact-checkers will use — and teach — the tools real journalists employ to separate fact from fiction, like reverse image searches." The trick, of course, is getting people to watch and learn from the videos, and this is going to mean getting teens to engage with them in some way. I also wish there was a focus beyond teens . But one step at a time, I suppose.
