The network is facilitated by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. The ‘Be Media Smart’ campaign coincides with European Media Literacy Week and is asking all of us to Stop, Think, Check when we come across information on any media platform. The campaign is particularly concerned with helping us identify sources of information that may be unreliable, as well as deliberately false or misleading.
