Drowning in Information Starved for Knowledge
           Susan F. Belgrad, Califonia State University Northridge
ABSTRACT  
The dilemma with the excessive amount of sources and forms of media information 
and misinformation is addressed in this article.  As faculty, we must recognize 
and then address the global problem of information-glut and misinformation.  
Educators need to help students at all levels to develop critical thinking as 
well as information-literacy capabilities.  An innovative process is suggested 
as one way to provide students with both recognition of bias and the need to 
critically analyze all forms of information.
