Abstract: Fake news, fake, misinformation, rumours, hoax, fibs. Lying, cheating and misinforming are not innovative strategies within the public sphere, but the Covid-19 pandemic has added a new layer to the post-truth era, resulting in an extraordinary landscape of misinformation. To curb the information disorder, a vaccine free of adverse side effects was proposed: Media and Information Literacy (MIL). This research reflects on the relationship between MIL and misinformation and questions its power of inoculation as a panacea. At the same time, it provides a brief outline of the history of MIL in Spain and its (scarce) presence in Compulsory Secondary Education in Galicia, based on a survey. The work is complemented by interviews with David Buckingham, José Manuel Perez-Tornero and Mari-Carmen Caldeiro Pedreira, and it addresses other subtopics such as the importance of promoting critical thinking; how misinformation becomes viral; the need to be aware of one's own biases; and the business model of online platforms. Finally, it presents a prototype of a didactic guide on tackling the problem of misinformation through MIL, both critically and creatively.
