Exploring Receivers' Criteria for Perception of Print and Online News.
Sundar, S. Shyam
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v76 n2 p373-86 Sum 1999
Investigates the factor structure underlying college students' perceptions of news content. Analyzes readers' ratings of news stories, revealing that receivers implicitly use at least four key variables in their perception of printed and online news stimuli. Explicates these four criteria (credibility, liking, quality, and representativeness) and offers measures for future empirical research on news perception. (SR)
