Websites can be a good source of information, but you need to evaluate everything you read very carefully. There are people out there who will try to fool you or sway you toward their own opinions without enough evidence to back up their claims. Ask yourself, What, Who, Why and When. And make sure to question your own biases as well. It is easy to find sources on the internet that back up our own beliefs, which is not always a good thing since we need to know about multiple aspects of an issue to form an opinion based on evidence.
