Imagine Your Day Without News

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

The McCormick Foundation Journalism Program partnered with a team of producers to create a video infographic that explains our definition of news literacy and our philosophy behind the Why News Matters initiative.

We encourage you to share this video and use it as a tool to help energize your colleagues, students, friends, family and others, to help make Chicago a city where hundreds of thousands of people – of all ages and backgrounds – are engaged in a variety of activities that enable them to access quality news, separate it from the noise and spin, and connect with the information they need to become more active in their communities. Suggested hashtags: #newsliteracy #journalism #whynewsmatters
