    IT DEPENDS. I suggest you write that down and refer to it a few times a day.
    Are you a Truther?

    Tell that to my liberal arts college and my grad school.

    And magazine articles ARE reviewed - if not before they are published, then after.

    so back to the op - is a book or magazine a valid source for materials when discussing subjects on this discussion board?

    Yes, they both can be, depending on the source.

    You can disagree all you want. When I quote a magazine, feel free to disagree with my source. Until then, have a wonderful life.

    The National Enquirer is generally known as a crap publication, but they did get well-deserved kudos for their coverage of the OJ trial. Probably the only time they actually did serious work.

    Even a People Magazine could be used as a source. If Actor A says "I like cheesecake" in an interview, that's a credible source that Actor A likes cheesecake. But, would you cite People Magazine on climate change? Probably not.

    So yeah, it depends.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You did not cite magazines in grad school. That's an outlandish lie. If you cited them in undergrad, your professor was a piece of ****.

    And what would a "we in academia" consider a reliable source? A peer reviewed paper in a journal as opposed to an article written by one of the highest regarded experts in my field published in a magazine?

    I never said I require clickable links. I said I require sources that have outside reviews.
