Know the news is part of Link tv, where it give viewers a perspective on world news that might not be typically seen in the United States.

One is a Remixer activity where students can edit news clips of the same event from different countries or networks, add their own commentary, and post it online. Teachers need to register in order for their classes to participate.

It also has a News Challenge game that can be played without registering. Two different short news clips are shown, and then questions are asked about them.

Finally, in its Watch and Rate exercise, viewers rate different clips on journalistic qualities.
