Filter out unreliable information
This is a slightly belated TFR, reporters! Things are a bit hectic right now, as you might know, so I’m going to throw up a video I recorded for Boston University.
An example would be “coronavirus filetype:pdf site:cdc.gov.” This would only show you PDFs published by the CDC. Helpful!
In general, these filters can help you find academic papers, government sources, educational sites and other handy, hard-won information. They work on some other search engines like Bing and DuckDuckGo.
Stay safe and wash your hands!
