Help your students get some perspective on how to read material in the media by taking a look at Fact Check Ed.
From the site:
"Not all information is of the same quality or veracity. Much of it, in fact, falls far short of the standards we’d like our students to learn and live by. Our aim is to help them learn to be smart consumers of information, not to accept it at face value; to dig for facts using the Internet, not to stop looking once they get to Wikipedia; and to weigh evidence logically, not to draw conclusions based on their own biases."
