So-Called 'Digital Natives' Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows

So-Called 'Digital Natives' Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - NY Times

This sums up the study results:

During the study, one of the researchers asked a study participant, "What is this website?" The student answered, "Oh, I don't know. The first thing that came up."

Wow.

One of the key things I learned in college was to ask the question, why did the person write this? What was their goal? It helps when figuring out the credibility of a page. Who is the author? What is their agenda? What is their background. Sometimes a quick google search is needed. There as one article in the Christian Science Paper on China. Slightly negative. So I google the author and it explained why once I figured out the authors background. It's surprising how many articles in the media are a bit lazy on researching what they are writing about and what is left out.
