Look at reputable newspapers like The New York Times, LA Times, The Washington Post or related online publications like Slate, or websites with a strong editorial presence like Catapult or The Rumpus. Avoid websites or publications with low barriers to entry (i.e. no Huffington Post or Medium). Make sure you’re looking for articles that can stand up to substantial close-reading, with a named author easily identifiable by their byline.
