second revision - English

posted by .

When evaluating online sources, one of the points to remember is that, all information listed on the internet is not reliable. In essence, when reading this blog titled "The Nation," I can not determine that the information is reliable because the source, author and credentials were missing. Although the "Wikipedia" article should be based on reliable sources, this article did not fit the guideline of a reliable source. This article clearly shows you a collection of data from different sources. Therefore, if the article shows data from different sources, shouldn't it be considered reliable?
The capital punishment article is somewhat reliable because the information is from a college website. As a result, I would not hesitate to use the information provided.

    You apparently misunderstood my italicized comments at the end of the first paragraph. Why do you consider the "Wikipedia" article unreliable? Citing data from different sources does not make it unreliable.
