Supplementary notes

To determine the level of news literacy, respondents were asked three questions to test their knowledge of the news environment. Those questions about funding to the public broadcaster, who is responsible for writing a press release, and the way Facebook selects news for people, were proven to be important for understanding the context and creation of news. Based on the number of questions answered correctly respondents were ranked from having very low news literacy to very high news literacy:
- 0 correct = very low news literacy
- 1 correct = low news literacy
- 2 correct = high news literacy
- 3 correct = very high news literacy.
