Evaluate These Web Sources

Use SIFT (also described on this guide's first page) to evaluate these sources.

  • Stop.
  • Investigate the source.
  • Find credible sources.
  • Trace claims, quotes, and media back to the original context.

Are the sources generally credible? Why (not)? Is it worth your time to move on to deeper reading of either source? Be prepared to share your evaluation process.
