Consider the Source: A Critical Guide to 100 Prominent News and Information Sites on the Web
The famous slogan of one major TV news network, “More people get their news from ... than from any other source,” now applies to the Internet. But where can you find the news you need, how can you gauge its veracity, and how can anyone keep up? The answers are in this unique book by a professor of journalism and a working reporter. Jim Broderick and Darren Miller have written an A-to-Z guide to the best and worst news and information sites, featuring 100 in-depth, critical reviews and a 5-star rating system. You'll discover dozens of reliable sites that meet your needs, learn what to expect before you log on, and gain a reporter's hardnosed perspective on the motives and bias behind each resource. The supporting Web site is a virtual portal to the world of online news.
