Media literacy: the election version
There is no break in election campaigns anymore.

Party operatives work long hours year round to find ways to bring voters to their side—or at least away from their opponents’ side. Even so, as the Midterm Election nears, information is moving at light speed and so much of it is exaggerated, misleading, and even false.

Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce provides tools the average citizen can use to make informed election decisions.
