Points of View

In order to get information on all aspects of your topic you will want to find articles from a variety of sources offering different points of view. 

Need to find sources representing various viewpoints?

When you evaluate sources or choose the angle you want to cover in your papers and speeches, identifying point of view (a.k.a. subjectivity or bias) in sources is a vital skill. All publications have a viewpoint, which you can use to your advantage. By choosing sources that span a variety of points of view, you will collect sources that address various angles of your topic. Use those sources to either argue against or to support your thesis. Below are some popular magazines with their "bias" indicated.

For more information about bias in media, visit the web sites for FAIR: Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting  and Accuracy in Media . To find “non-mainstream” points of view in articles, search for your topics in Alternative Press .
