When we find a source, we should evaluate it to determine if it is credible, accurate and non-biased.
It is often helpful to open a second tab when reading a source so that you can search for linked studies referenced in the source. You can also search to see if there other sources that report the same information. This is referred to as 'lateral reading' or cross-checking.

The interactive media bias chart linked below allows you to click a specific publication and see where it falls on the chart, as well as see how particular articles are rated in terms of bias and quality.
