The Fight Against Fake News Starts at the Local Library

Seattle librarian develops class to help the public combat misinformation.



This guy is a warrior in the fight against fake news.

Di Zhang, an adult services librarian at Seattle's Central Library, helped developed a new curriculum, "Fake News Survival Guide: Resources and Tips for Staying Informed." The free class, offered twice every three months in a library computer lab, promotes media literacy and helps participants -- mostly adult seniors -- navigate the ridiculous amount of misinformation on the internet.

Sounds like the perfect class for your uncle who is still forwarding you those insane Obama-is-a-Muslim emails.
