An Exercise in Web Evaluation

Using Guest workers/Immigration as a model.

What is credible?

Has it been edited/reviewed? (avoid the ~ in the URL)
Is the author an expert or a guy in his pajamas?
Is it trying to sell you something?
Does it have a "works cited" section?
Are there clues to bias?
Do they over-rely on emotion?
Does it looks cheesy?


Guest workers in WaPo

Guest workers won't work

Guest Workers won't work


If we look closer...

Let's try again

Look closer and...

How about on the other side?

To be "fair"
