2020 Election: Reliable News Sources

This guide provides resources and information related to United States elections in 2020.

Being an Informed Consumer of News

No news source is completely unbiased.

Humans create information. Even when it comes to data, someone is deciding what to collect, and how to collect it.

The resources listed here are not unbiased, but they are direct links to publications and organizations committed to fact-checking and accountability. Going directly to a source of news (either through their home page or through the Libraries' subscriptions) avoids specific types of information manipulation by commercial search algorithms, social media, and out-of-context quotation.
