You are expected to find and evaluate accurate sources for your assignments. If you can't determine whether or not the article or website you're reading is reliable, refer to the ABCD test in the Evaluating Sources tab of this guide.
Avoid CNN, Fox News, and other "infotainment" news sites, unless your professor tells you otherwise. These sites are typically more focused on selling ads than informing their visitors.
The titles on this page are available on their websites. If you can't access an article without a subscription, look up the newspaper or magazine title in Browzine to find it in an SU database. Some library databases are easier to use than others; ask for help if you need it!
These are examples of the largest "reputable" newspapers. There are many others.
The New York Times
The Washington Post
The Wall Street Journal
Los Angeles Times
The London Times
These papers also contain opinion pieces and editorials which most likely do not meet the same standards of reliability and objectivity as their news coverage.
Follow these instructions to search major news sources and browse today's newspaper.
Examples of non-newspaper news sources:
The Economist Magazine
Christian Science Monitor
If you question the reliability of a source, your professor has the final say on what you can use.
