One of the biggest hurdles in finding quality news sources is that often, the tools we use the most do not do enough to discern between reliable and unreliable sources of information. While some popular sites are working to combat this problem, headlines have also been filled with major failures on the part of some of the most popular websites to contain the spread of misinformation.   

There are, however, better ways of finding information. Forsyth Library provides a variety of reliable databases for investigating News and Current Events

If you're having trouble determining the validity of a source, or need help researching quality information, remember that you can always Ask a Librarian.
