3.1b Point of view or bias, prejudice, deception or manipulation.

The screen captures on this page (you can click on them to enlarge them) are examples of manipulative or deceptive websites. The first, the Institute for Historical Review, has been accused of being a Holocaust Revisionist site that, amongst other things, refutes the occurrence of the Holocaust. The second, a website supposedly about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is essentially a site that attacks the life and accomplishments of Dr. King. Lastly, the third one mimics the site for the World Trade Organization, but is the site for another anti-globalization organization.

Note that these types of sites often end with .org in their URL. Just because the information on a website has been "published" by an organization, does not mean that the information or site is unbiased, unprejudiced, or truthful. To better understand how you can use the information in a URL to assess the reliability or quality of a website, see the 3.1b bias document in the attachments.
