“At the most basic level, we encourage Americans to consume information with a critical eye, check out sources before reposting or spreading messages, practice good cyber hygiene and media literacy, and report suspicious election-related activity to authorities,” he added in a written statement.

media literacy 媒体素养, 媒介素养
Media literacy is the ability to identify different types of media and understand the messages they're sending. Kids take in a huge amount of information from a wide array of sources, far beyond the traditional media (TV, radio, newspapers, and magazines) of most parents' youth. There are text messages, memes, viral videos, social media, video games, advertising, and more. But all media shares one thing: Someone created it. And it was created for a reason. Understanding that reason is the basis of media literacy.
媒介素养被定义为能够正确认识和使用媒介的一种能力,这种能力是公民了解、使用、判断媒介及媒介信息的能力,媒介素养教育就是培养公民媒介素养的过程。

We Should Teach Media Literacy in Elementary School. Helping children distinguish fake from real news will give them a lifelong benefit. The digital age has made it easy for anyone to create media. We don't always know who created something, why they made it, and whether it's credible. This makes media literacy tricky to learn and teach. Nonetheless, media literacy is an essential skill in the digital age.
