What Makes a Source Credible? 

You will be using sources in your Long Report. It used to be easier to identify a trustworthy website; there used to be marked differences in website design and professionalism that gave significant clues. But we are all much more web design-savvy now and even sites that are fabricated or have a clear agenda often look professional. 

How do you know if a website is credible? In a short 3-5 sentence paragraph explain what makes a website more credible (and thus, more useful for formal academic and job-place writing). Try to provide an example of a credible and not credible website and why you trust one more than the other.
