Angelina Jolie Boards BBC Series To Help Kids Spot Fake News


In the wake of composing a progression of opinion piece in the course of recent years and seizing a job as a contributing manager to Time, Angelina Jolie is truly inclining toward her newly discovered journalistic side gig. Truth be told, as the vast majority working in news coverage, she appears to be worried about the overall population’s absence of fundamental media education. What’s more, she’s wanting to address that with, for goodness’ sake, a network show for children and young people.

As indicated by Variety, Jolie has marked on to official produce BBC My World which will use the journalistic system of the BBC to assist kids with swimming through what’s genuine and what’s phony—and eventually make up their own personalities about significant issues.

“As a parent I am glad to have the option to give my help to a program that intends to assist kids with becoming familiar with the lives of other youngsters around the globe, and associate them to one another,” said Jolie in an announcement acquired by Variety. “I trust it will assist kids with finding the data and devices they have to have any kind of effect on the issues that issue to them, drawing on the BBC World Service’s system of thousands of columnists and different language benefits far and wide.”


Oh, Jolie herself won’t step into the job of Nick News’ Linda Ellerbee for the Gen-Z set. Previous Blue Peter and current BBC moderator Radzi Chinyanganya will fill in as host for the week after week half-hour program. However, as a review demonstrates, that doesn’t really mean Jolie will never spring up on the program

What’s more, in case you think the BBC, all things considered, implies Jolie just thinks about British youngsters, fuss not. The program will air on BBC World News, which is a worldwide station conveyed by a few link administrators in the United States. For rope cutters, substance will likewise be accessible on YouTube.

You likewise won’t need to stand by long for the show. It premiers this Sunday at 11:30 a.m.

A trailer of the projects (which, indeed, highlights Jolie) demonstrates that themes from environmental change to sex stereotyping to facial acknowledgment innovation will be tended to with an accentuation on urging watchers to utilize their own basic reasoning aptitudes.


While even the consolidated forces of Angelina Jolie and the BBC alone can’t battle the scourge of phony news and falsehood, it’s undeniably clear something must be finished.

Just 13.5 percent of 15-year-olds in America can appropriately recognize and sentiment from a reality. That is as per a universal government sanctioned test regulated in 2018. In the United Kingdom, just 11.5 percent of test takers could. (The best exhibitions on that bit of the test originated from understudies in China). Obviously, a snappy scrutiny of Facebook remarks and Twitter shows the issue of lacking fundamental media education isn’t contained just to young people.

While the media absolutely isn’t above analysis, assaults on reporting have originated from all sides of the political range. Indeed, even outside of governmental issues, kids today are assaulted with a wide range of deluding data and undisclosed promoting from influencers. While some non-benefits have emerged to help battle the issue (and states like California have even passed laws making media proficiency assets all the more promptly accessible), Jolie joining the campaign just makes a difference.

Also, the lady surely knows a ton about phony news. We as a whole know somebody who might trust it in the event that we revealed to them we heard she was going to join a throuple with Brad and Jen.
