Is Everything on The Web True?

Critical assessment of The Web

The Dangers of Learning on The Web Source: Huffington Post

1. Research the source: Does it have any hidden agendas or sponsors? 2. Is there any missing info? Have any sources or explanations been obviously ignored? 3. Be careful of buzzwords: Does the author use any undefined words which evoke an emotional response? How to Recognise Bias

4. Is it showing the full story? There should be stats/views for all sides of the issue 5. Where do stats come from? Who collected, conducted or funded the research? Do they have any motives behind it? 6. Does the info seem sensible? Try a quick internet search to see whether other articles display similar information How to Recognise Bias
