  3. To be more specific: • What is a source? • What are some strategies for evaluating sources?

  4. What is a source? A source is a person who provides information for a news report.

  5. Types of sources Witnesses and Officials • Witnesses are present at the time of the event or are directly affected by it. • Officials are people who represent the government, a business, and so on.

  6. Types of sources Experts • Often experts are quoted after an events occurs. • They are qualified to chare their knowledge about what happened.

  7. Types of sources Visual Sources • Photographs or videotape can also be resources. • News photographers take still photographs and video footage that are included in news articles and broadcasts.

  8. Types of sources Sources as counterpoints • One source may give one side of an event or an issue. • In the SAME report, another source may have a very different view.

  9. Strategies for Evaluating Sources • Identify a source by name and determine his/her role. • Question why a source is included in a news report. (What is this source helping me to understand about the event?)

  10. Strategies for Evaluating Sources • Be aware that what you hear or see is not the entire interview. Think about how the sound bites, quotations, or images support certain facts. • In reports that include countering or opposing sources, check to see that the two sides are balanced or are represented equally.
