Robert Yale"Examining first- and second-order factor structures for news credibility."

In the Author's Words
For several decades, researchers have developed and tested measures of news credibility to identify the relative weight that news consumers give to various news outlets. These measures of news credibility have largely failed to pass key tests of measurement stability and validity. This research tests a measure of news credibility published by Abdulla et al., (2004) and identifies problems with the validity of the measure. This article proposes an alternative measure of news credibility which eliminates the problems extant in the Abdulla (2004) measure and in other commonly used measures of news credibility.
