you know damn well that it's not about "filtering online information". give them a newspaper and they'll pick up on BS from those too. it's all about being more open minded and having a broader view of the world. the people from older generation that embraced the internet and learned how to use it effectively also have the same mindset. it's much harder to fool someone who will question everything you say and not believe blindly. FYI the new generation isn't smarter or more stupid than the older one. a different set of skills are required now to live in our society as a young adult and what they have to learn is also very different.
