The link to "Biased Headlines" is leads me back to the main page. Has that lesson been removed or is the hyperlink not correct?

The Biased Headlines link is not working, either on the page or in your response above. The links go to the home page.
Thanks for looking into this.

Hi Megan,

Thanks for letting me know. And wow, I'm surprised, because it is still working for me. Sometimes, it is a browser issue. I'm in Chrome and it's fine although I do know our site works best in Firefox. Could that be the reason? I don't know.
