In what regards are you speaking of? Some scholars are better than others. However, the best sources usually come from books. In fact, the subreddit r/AskHistorians (a sub which takes history and factual information very seriously) has a list of the best sources of historical knowledge they can find.
https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/wiki/books

I have read a couple of these, and I can confirm they are very comprehensive. Seeing your username, I can imagine you may interested in british history. Hence, I reccomend "Replenishing the Earth: The rise of the anglo world", which describes the rapid population boom of the anglo-american people during the early and late industrial revolution, a cornerstone to the zenith the British and American nations experienced during this period. It's fascinating stuff and definitely worth a read.

Wikipedia is pretty good. But there can be some lies in there.

If you're talking about serious sources then academic papers and books are your best bet. Those are required to involve tons of research and sourcing so are generally more reliable than most.

It's obviously Reddit.

Seriously though, you're best off looking at books by reliable historians. As for the Internet, r/askhistorians on Reddit and Quora are good places to ask questions. The Council on Foreign Relations has articles on US foreign relations. Brookings might have stuff too.

I get my information online from a variety of sources. Wikipedia is a good starting point if you want overviews, however I tend to use it to open my eyes to new avenues for further investigation.
The best advice I can give you is to write down names, titles, events, etc and follow up on them with your own search. You can just google, "best books for topic xyz" and go from there, or google whatever you're interested in. Usually, someone has done the research and put information out there for you. The best way to determine if it is reliable is source the material and corroborate it in your own studies.
