1. Review the origins of broadcasts, internet and printed news articles. Are they reputable organizations, schools or persons? Are the articles opinions? Do they have footnotes and or source credits?
2. Analyze political speeches and statements. Most politicians are stating political talking points established by think tanks, political groups, special interests and lobbyists. They often have agenda's that are religious, personal, economic or political.
3. Analyze TV and radio broadcasts. Some "reports" are personal opinions and some are accounts of events. 4. When hearing or seeing a report, check the background of the reporter and screen the information for bias and third party influence.
5. Never accept a report on face value. Research it from a variety of opposing articles, primary and secondary sources.
We use Wikipedia and YouTube on many of our pages. They are a starting point but not a reliable primary source of information. Use them to get an understanding of the topic and check the information they give you with other more reliable resources.
