Media literacy bill survives lengthy debate and Republican opposition

Colorado Politics: After an eight-day delay, House lawmakers went another two hours Friday on a media literacy bill that Republicans claim will provide one-sided, leftist views of the media.

House Bill 21-1103 would put into law the recommendations of an advisory committee, formed under HB 19-1110, that came up with standards for a media literacy curriculum for public schools.

Co-sponsor Rep. Lisa Cutter, D-Littleton, said the bill would require school districts to incorporate media literacy into reading, writing and literacy standards the next time those standards are up for review.
