media slanting: What to watch and listen for Remember: news media are after ratings, not necessarily the truth. Watch for bias during the opening or lead-in. Ask how representative or generalizable case studies are. Don’t let pictures overwhelm the facts. Beware of quoted sources with an agenda. Beware of “black hats” or “white hats.” When statistics are presented is the underlying methodology explained? Watch out for rhetorical questions with no follow-up proof.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
