Discussion Question Two Review the following Internet and University Library sources. Determine which sources are reliable and which are not. Explain your answers. Blog: http://www.thenation.com/blogs/thebeat?bid=1&pid=1622 This site is obviously a blog. The information in it is insightful, but unfortunately, biased. I would not use this as a reliable source of information. Wiki site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_punishment#Public_opinion I have been very strongly warned against the use of this site as a source, particularly for a research project. Wiki allows anyone to add information, opinions and anything else they would like to add without scanning for factual premise.

Unformatted text preview: more biased than others. However, I would still use this site due to the fact that it is a very firm place to start any research of this subject. The author clearly states their position on capital punishment, however, also uses facts to back that opinion up.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
