CRITICAL READING: Nothing But the Truth. Everywhere we look, but especially on the web, we find emotionally charged language and opinion masquerading as fact, often written by people with little knowledge of their topics but with a strong desire to persuade. We hope readers will learn to strip away emotional language, sort facts from opinions, examine the qualifications and motives of writers, and finally consider whether the evidence warrants believing a claim as "nothing but the truth."
