- “Governments should promote news literacy and strong professional journalism.
- The news industry must provide high-quality journalism to build public trust, and correct fake news and disinformation without legitimizing them.
- Technology companies should invest in tools that identify fake news, reduce financial incentives for those who profit from disinformation, and improve online accountability.
- Educational institutions should make informing people about news literacy a high priority.
- Finally, individuals should follow a diversity of news sources, and be skeptical of what they read and watch.”
