Need to find Primary Sources? The Digital Public Library of America pulls from digital archives all over the country. Voices of Democracy focuses on the great speeches and debates of US History. The National Archives not only contains America’s Founding Documents but also features a section called Founders Online, which contains searchable documents from the 7 major shapers of the United States.
Need a reliable news source? Choose Non-profit or publicly owned news organizations instead of a private company. In the United States, National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Station both have a news branch and are publicly funded.
You can also try an independent Newswire, which is a wire service that electronically provides up-to-date information to the media about breaking news, issues, and events. An independent newswire is not paid to select articles, like a commercial or PR newswire. The Associated Press is a non-profit and based in the US. Reuters is publicly owned and based in the UK.
