Evaluating News Sources

Spot fake news from real news with this guide.

Check for Bias (including your own)

Even when you are looking for news from a credible source, be sure to evaluate each news article, image, video, or post for accuracy and bias. Read widely! Even trusted media sources can have bias. Agreeing with news articles does not necessarily make them true; it is important to consider your own biases when reading as well.
