Canada’s 15th annual Media Literacy Week is underway, co-sponsored by MediaSmartsCanada’s Centre for Digital and Media Literacy, and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation.

This year’s event comes as misinformation surrounding COVID-19, the debate over what is fake news, and the distrust of mainstream media reach a fever pitch.

On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast, we’re joined by MediaSmarts’ Director of Education Matthew Johnson, an educator and former writer, who shares his thoughts on how to help rebuild trust in legitimate news sources.
