Understanding The News
How do you determine what’s true? What’s just spin by someone with an agenda? What should news consumers expect — even demand — from news providers?
Civil Beat is committed to helping you navigate the rapidly moving news landscape. In this section you’ll find resources and information that will teach you how to analyze a news story for accuracy, fairness and freedom from conflicts of interest.
We’ll also be bringing you inside Civil Beat, with regular columns and webcasts about us, our reporting practices and ethical choices. Our new “Ask A Question” forum gives you the opportunity to discuss Civil Beat directly with our staff.
