Overview:

The internet contains a wealth of information. This information can be used to learn about new things or to verify facts. However, much of the information on the internet is either biased in some way or incorrect.

Information that is biased or incorrect loses its value. When information has no value, it is of no use to us. We need to be able to distinguish between information that is valuable (of use to us) and that which is not.
