In our internet-driven world, news comes at us from every direction and from many different sources. But just because a news story shows up in our Facebook or Twitter feed doesn’t mean it’s credible or authoritative. The proliferation of fake news is a growing problem, since the internet makes it easy for anyone to publish something that looks like a real news story. In addition, many news publications lean in one direction or another on the political spectrum, which influences the way they present information. That’s why it’s important for everyone, from the student to the general reader, to understand where news comes from and how the source of an article may influence its presentation of the facts.
Gale’s InfoTrac collections, like Academic OneFile, General OneFile, and InfoTrac Newsstand, bring users news content from the world’s leading periodical publications—authoritative sources you can trust. InfoTrac also gives you every side of the story, with a balance of publications from across the political spectrum.
