Cautions on the Web

Use a search engine and limit to "news" to find news articles quickly, but beware: it may be from an unreliable "news" source. Look carefully at the URL and title of the website. Is it a reliable news provider (i.e. CBC)? Is it a satire site (i.e. the Onion)? Is it a blog promoting one person's opinion on the issue?

Even reliable news providers may have a bias towards different sides of an issue. That does not mean they are unreliable for that topic, but it is important to think about what bias it might have.

Check out the "Evaluating Sources" tab and the "News, Bias, and Viewpoints" tab to learn more.
