Note: Although complete objectivity and lack of bias is difficult to achieve, the above news providers are recognized as generally reputable sources. 

Beware any non-mainstream news sites that intentionally provide misleading information not based on facts.

Ask yourself - does the article headline seem like it's trying to get site clicks, likes, or comments? Does the headline describe the article's content or is it gimmicky, vague, or uninformative? Does the writing seem overly emotional, satirical, or even comedic? Can you confirm the accuracy of the information with additional searches? Are other news sources reporting the same information?
