Tips for Your Research

  • Use the News and Magazines results for current media coverage.

  • Adjust the dates on the results filter for narrowing to a certain time period.

  • Click the name of the publication to find a short description if you have questions about bias or point-of-view.

  • "Fake News" sources are not typically represented in databases. If a source is available through a database, it is a trusted, reliable source. It may be an opinion piece or be from a well-known publication that does support a particular point-of-view. That does not mean the information is false.
