The "libel and slander" example above is certainly interesting, but I'll need a minimum of 3 sources to support my academic presentation.
Your audience: College-educated, some are experts in things like communication, politics, government, medicine, psychology, etc.
Which sources will persuade or best inform them?
Popular sources? These are things like news websites, Tweets, blogs, or articles published in magazines that contain ads and appeal to as many readers as possible.
Scholarly sources? These are often books that have been reviewed by academic librarians or articles published in scholarly journals in which the content is reviewed for quality by highly-credentialed experts. These tend to be written by experts for experts.
Can your professor tell the difference? Yes. Usually just a quick glance at an APA citation is all it takes.
