Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A valuable, no-nonsense resource for newshounds and headline scanners alike."  —Michael D. Calia, The Press of Atlantic City

"In the confusing, complex web of news and information sites, Consider the Source is a terrific guide for all journalists and media-watchers."  — Sree Sreenivasan, professor, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism

"Want to find the best news on the Internet? Broderick and Miller have done the work for you, with a informative and entertaining guide to the Web's most popular news sites. They offer hard, honest appraisals of these sites, celebrating the successes and exposing the failures. Whether you are a journalism student, a news junkie looking for another fix, or just a concerned reader wondering if you're getting the most accurate information, Broderick and Miller's guide will help you improve the quality of your bookmark list and RSS feeds."  —Robert Niles, editor, Online Journalism Review

School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up -This accessible resource will be valuable in a wide variety of classes, including public speaking and journalism. Each entry includes an overview of the company behind the publication, what appears on the site, images, reasons to visit, and a rating of the content. Web site reviews on this topic are available from many online and print sources, but this one is the most concise and easiest to use. Be forewarned: because of the dynamic nature of the Internet, the "What You'll Find There" sections of each entry are likely to change. All in all, though, this is a useful book.-Ivy Miller, Kirby Library, Kingston, PA

    Extremely Informative and Easy to Read

    I enjoyed this book very much. It is an absolute must for students doing research and anyone who wants to know that the website they are using is indeed an informative and reliable source. I'm looking forward to the next work of these two authors, Web of Conspiracy. Keep them coming.
