How to read laterally:
- Leave the website, open new tabs, and seek additional information about a website's credibility, reputation, funding, and potential biases.
- Don't just rely on the information found on the website itself. Don't take their word for it. See what others have to say.
- Lateral reading allows you to get a more complete perspective on the credibility of a source.
