OMAHA, NE — KMTV, our parent company Scripps, and the News Literacy Project are all participating this week in an effort to help people sort out fact from fiction.

National News Literacy Week is aimed at helping people figure out what information they get is reliable and what is not reliable.

In the Internet Age, there is a lot of information floating out there ,and much of it is not credible.But how can you know what information to trust?

All this week, 3 News Now will be providing you with stories and tools to help sort it all out.

We kicked off the week with a project in conjunction with Westside High School. 3 News Now reporter John Madden worked with high school journalist Hannah-Kate Kinney to help her produce a story on how high school students are getting involved in politics and preparing to vote for the first time. John also documented their project to show how people can make sure the information they report and read is accurate.
