· Anatomy of a Fake Quotation by Megan McArdle of The Atlantic
· QuoteInvestigator by Garson O'Toole
· Here's a good guideline when dealing with information on the web: When in doubt, doubt!
· What is the URL? (Is it from a place you’ve heard of before?)
· What type of page is it? (Is it someone’s personal page? e.g., Geocities, aol.com). Did the Holocaust happen?
· What type of domain is it? (.edu is more believable than many others)
· Where is it? (Is it hosted in another country? e.g., ru, cn, iz, etc.)?
· Check the "About" section. (Is the web page affiliated with a place you’ve heard of?)
· Is there a date and author? Look up the author in Google (usually need to use double quotes).
· Why was the page put on the web? (to inform? to convince? whose point of view?)
