Newspapers and News Media

Most newspapers and news stations have guidelines that require reporters to have two or more independent sources for news stories. There are also editors and staff to check for facts and bias.  However, there may still be errors and a liberal or conservative perspective, so consult different news sources and find supporting information.

The news industry has also experienced much upheaval with a decline in reputable newspapers and a proliferation of news sources of varying quality.
