Manipulating the pieces and fitting them together in Tetris goes hand in hand with sifting through sources and applying them to your research topic. There can be many bumps and holes along the way, but you can always start over. Finding credible sources and using legit claims to back up your argument is imperative for successful research. It’s easy to manipulate the pieces to research, but if you’re not careful the mistakes will pile up quickly, just as John Oliver referred to with his Trump examples. Credibility can make or break your research.
