Critical Thinking: get enlightened!

Asking the Right Questions

What kinds of questions should you have in mind when you encounter information?

Does the information satisfy my needs? Is the producer of the information an authority? Are they qualified to report the information? Is the information current? Is there evidence of bias or value-ladened words? Is the information propaganda or an advertisement? What is the producer's purpose or motive? Is the information complete? Are there better sources of information elsewhere?
