As popular sources, news media and social media must be carefully evaluated for credibility, accuracy, and bias, and well as cross-checked against the reports of other sources. Social media can be useful for accessing breaking news topics, but be careful!
A fact-checking tool will help you evaluate the truth of political statements and ideas widely reported in mainstream media. The Choosing Sources page of our library page will also help you make wise decisions about information sources.
A news aggregation tool will help you curate the news of media sources you select — and develop a reading routine for current events.
