Fact-checking and news organization

How does the public differentially perceive and share news articles that correct misinformation about politicians? If the public perceives a relationship between a news organization and a politician as favorable, are their evaluations regarding the credibility of the news reports that fact-check or correct misinformation about one of the politicians different, depending on the news organization?

Jisu Kim at Yale and I recently presented our research investigating these questions at the Yale ISP conference, “News and Information Disorder in the 2020 Presidential Election.”

  • Our essay based on the research is available at the Knight Foundation website (link).
