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.
