They also gave advice for young people and other citizens who are interested in playing a watchdog role and discussed the importance of effectively evaluating political issues, news, and candidates during election season and beyond. This hangout was part of a special series on “Building News Literacy, Critical Media Skills, and Political Awareness Today” produced in connection to Letters to the Next President 2.0.
