Editorial: Media literacy — Bone up, get smart, be savvy

By Angelo S. Lynn



In today’s cable news era, Americans will need to become more media savvy to understand the ways facts can be spun and to distinguish between “fake” and “real” news.

Trump knew it was blatantly false and thoroughly debunked, but he also knew that wouldn’t matter to his supporters who wanted to believe otherwise.

By David Brynn



Trump stayed on script. The Republicans had a good night and were mighty proud of themselves. Pelosi looked a bit lost. She really ought to move on. Pence looked like a nine-year-old who had just gotten a brand new baseball glove. Trump did a good job and it was great seeing him without his red tie around his neck and Bannon at his ear.
