In a world full of unimaginable absurdity, we spend a lot of time thinking about the future… and to where all of this insanity leads.

November 24, 2027: “Media Literacy” Classes for school-Kids a Huge Success

It’s been four years since California and New York mandated “Media Literacy” classes to teach public schoolchildren how to recognize online misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation.

And according to public education officials, the classes have been a resounding success.

They point to recent testing which shows students being able to accurately identify 95% of digital misinformation.

For example, students correctly understood that online content showing American or Israeli flags almost always contains misinformation and disinformation intended to advance violence and oppression.

Meanwhile, news websites which sympathetically display Palestinian flags are trustworthy sources whose claims can be completely believed without question.

Students have also learned to judge the veracity of online content by analyzing the intersectionality of its author.

The more victim groups an author belongs to, the higher the chances of the article being true. And students have learned to conduct extensive research on the matter.

Authors who list their pronouns on their social media profiles are almost always to be believed, especially when those pronouns differ from the author’s biological sex.

But students have also been trained on the nuances of intersectionality analysis.

Jews, for example, do not count as a victim group. In fact students learned that Jewish authors are far more likely to produce mis- and dis-information than atheists.

Furthermore, in accordance with the principles of #BelieveAllWomen, news articles written by persons identifying as female are far more likely to be true than other articles written by cis-males.

Yet students also learned that this principle should not be applied when the news in question pertains to sexual assault allegations against President Biden.

Students also learned to completely discard content from conservative news sources, and they were also trained on the most efficient ways to quickly report those posts to the proper authorities.

As part of their graduation requirements, students are also required to complete a capstone project to demonstrate their ability to apply media literacy skills in the real world.

For example, the graduation capstone exercise for students at Justice High School in New York City was to find a scholarly article from the past that used to be considered ‘science’, but is now obvious misinformation.

Students unearthed an old Scientific American article from 2007 which discussed how paleontologists identify the gender of various human skeletons.

The article contains a number of offensive statements, such as “Living animals have primary sexual characteristics, such as genitalia, that differ between males and females.”

Students instantly recognized that acknowledging any biological difference between males and females is extremely oppressive, and hence blatant misinformation.

Why are you unhappy about this? You have a distrust in the media.

Correct a high distrust.

90% of the media is fake news. Complete lies over and over again. Americans should distrust the media as much as they distrust government.

What source(s) of information do you find to be trustworthy?

New bone Mikey?
This isnt the first time you have ask and got answers, since you failed to learn and use politfact as fact checking, will have to give you an F and hold you back.

kitt, clearly California doesn’t require teachers to pass an IQ exam.

We know Mikey thought it would be a breezer job with summers off, he puts zero effort into the education a kid needs to be successful. 34 years of riding the level of the system down.
From #1 to 12th wheeeeee

Yeah, when someone lies to me repeatedly and actively suppresses the truth, all showing a distinct political bias, I tend to distrust them.

Right, and the description of the program appears to acknowledge that.

The reason or motive is also clear to make them trust the media as you do.

Was it honest for the media to report Trump was a Russian asset? Was it honest for the media to suppress and ignore Hunter’s laptop and the evidence of Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s corruption? Was it honest for the media to ignore Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden extorting Ukraine to protect Hunter’s Burisma paycheck? Was it honest for the media to ignore the massive disaster on our open southern border?

Tell me, honestly (if at all possible), if the media had Trump’s daughter’s diary in which she wrote that her dad forced her, as a young girl, to shower with him, would they have totally ignored that bombshell?

The leftist Ministry of Propaganda is in the business of nothing but protecting the Democrat party and having people that condone and promote that obscenity in charge of “media literacy” for children is nothing but the pathway to indoctrination and censorship. It can end up no other way. No possibility of any other outcome.
