  • Research Therapy: Controversial Topics | Cited at the Oviatt
    almost unrealistic for journalism and the media to report information without some degree of media bias you should think and reflect about how accurate and fair the sources are presenting you with news If we measure the objectivity of the source by how accurate and fair that source presents information then we can learn about the many sides of an issue and its opposing points of view How do we distinguish between objective and unreliable sources Just because a news source is opinionated or espouses a possible agenda like a political leaning or corporate backing that does not mean it is unreliable But sources that show multiple views and allow rebuttals to their own stated opinions are more likely to provide a well rounded examination of current events and social issues As a researcher you should try to find those type of sources so that even if you re writing about your interpretation of an issue your viewpoint will present opinions that are well supported and aware of all the other points of view Links to databases featured in videos Opposing Viewpoints in Context Gale Virtual Reference Library CQ Researcher Mario Macias This entry was posted in research Research Therapy Uncategorized and tagged Controversial Topics CSUN Oviatt Library research Research Therapy Bookmark the permalink Celebrate National Library Week with the Oviatt CSUN Student Wins 50 Gift Card to Barnes Noble Comments are closed Links About QR Codes Library Tours Oviatt Library Advanced Placement Student Program Oviatt Library Advanced Placement Student Program Map Oviatt Library s Pinterest Research Strategies Tutorials and How Tos Oviatt Library Facebook Feed Oviatt Library 2 days ago It s time for another Peek in the Stacks library csun edu SCA Peek in the Stacks brad pye BlackHistoryMatters BlackHistoryMonth CSUN See More See Less Brad Pye Jr
