It is imperative that we responsibly consume and share the news. In an era characterized by both widespread distrust of the media at large and attacks on the free press, we must maintain a healthy skepticism of the news we read without resorting to universal cynicism.
PostTruth is a poster series and companion website that teaches us how to be more mindful of the news. Each poster displays a headline from a popular news source that exhibits one of five common types of media bias: journalistic spin, cherry-picking, ad hominem attacks, presenting opinions as facts, or fearmongering. The website, posttruth.news, serves as an instructional resource on journalistic bias in general with further context for each example. The lessons are designed to be applicable as readers navigate the media environment in the future.
