#1 There is no quality assurance when it comes to information found on the Internet: Anyone can post anything.

#2 In most cases, information found on the web has not been checked for accuracy.

#3 Not all web sites are created equal. They differ in quality, purpose, and bias.

#4 Some web sites have sponsors who pay for specific content to promote their products or ideas. The information is not impartial but biased.

#5 Some web sites voice opinions rather than make informed arguments.

#6 Some web sites are meant to be entertaining rather than informative.

#7 Some web sites seek to scandalize and breed controversy rather than provide reliable information.
