Web Evaluation: objectivity

What to look for:
  • Is there any bias? Is there an overriding political or ideological agenda?
  • What is the purpose of the web page? Is the page designed to sway opinion?
  • Can you distinguish facts from opinion?
  • Are resources cited to support opinions?

Most resources have some sort of bias. That's not a bad thing (opinions are good!). It's just something of which you should be aware when using information.
