Each article is reviewed by a editor before being published. When newspapers make mistakes they make a public announcement of their error and then correct it. For current events they are the most accurate source of information available.

Newspapers vary in quality, and quality newspapers are usually not free. However, the Good Library purchases online access to three national newspapers: The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Each one has slightly different access options.
