Evaluating Sources: Information Timeline

Information Timeline

As an event develops, information about it is generated and disseminated.  The first reports show up on the Internet, television, and radio.  First reports usually focus on the quick facts: who, what, where.  As time passes, information filters through different types of resources, with the level of coverage increasing and becoming much more detailed and analytical.
