Conceptualizing Sources in Online News.
Sundar, S. Shyam; Nass, Clifford
Journal of Communication, v51 n1 p52-72 Mar 2001
Identifies key conceptions of communication "sources" in the literature. Proposes a typology of sources that applies to traditional media and new online media. Evaluates this typology: confirms distinctions made in the typology, finding that attribution of identical content to four different types of online sources by undergraduate students was associated with significant variation in news story perception.
