Students need to be able to digest and interpret useful information received from the various mediums of today's media and disregard potentially harmful or inaccurate information
OK kids, now disregard this and disregard this; ah, here is something you should digest. All we need is a committee to decide what is digestible and what will cause heartburn.

Back in my day, old man that I am, the schools taught us how to tell the difference between authoritative and non-authoritative media in our writing (they also taught us how to write, back then). Things like 'READER's DIGEST' were not considered authoritative. Do they still print that?

Anyway, compared to what passes for "journalism" these days, Reader's Digest seems fairly calm... but then, I digress.

Just what we need. A legislative quack mandating yet another course without curriculum or materials. We might be #50 in most everything else, but we are #1 is legislative dumbness.

For such to be valuable, we need much better news reportage. Some who write for the Sun/News need a course or two in English, by the way.
