Where can I find information about controversial issues or politics?
A good place to start is CQResearcher.
CQ Researcher is a website that creates reports every week regarding current topics and controversial issues. The reports are very comprehensive, and include relevant data and statistics, an overview of the topic, a pro and con section, and a future outlook section.
Search tip: use very general terms when searching this website. For example, if your topic whether or not college athletes should be paid, you might just enter "athlete" or "athletics" into the search bar.
