DENVER — As we celebrate Scripps Media Literacy Week, we asked Coloradans if they could identify trustworthy news stories.
Beyond just which sources seemed the most credible, we discussed which posts themselves seemed like they were based on opinion or fact. Even credible sources can feature commentary, which is why it can be important to read the context clues.
The stories below are the examples that we used, so you can follow along with the video above:
