Nonscientific news sources
- BBC News
- Spinsanity. "Countering
rhetoric with reason." This is a great nonpartisan website that acts as
watchdog for dishonest claims made by politicians and other people in
influential positions. Their book All the President's Spin: George
W. Bush, the media, and the truth is very informative, too.
After the 2004 presidential election they stopped publishing articles,
but they'll keep the archives online.
- FactCheck.org. Another website
in the spirit of Spinsanity. Their
motto is "Holding politicians accountable." I like the quote they
have these days: "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not
their own facts."
- FAIR. Fairness & Accuracy in
Reporting. Their weekly radio show CounterSpin is very informative.
- Skeptical Inquirer
- Point of Inquiry
- La Tercera
