Question and answer
What factors do you think influence the credibility of the following list of sources: newspaper, magazine, television programs, movies, television news reporting, the Internet, and advertising
what influences their credibility is the content shown on printed on them . If a content is verified of an internet site it may be true or untrue . Newspapers : bound by certain laws and can face liability for claiming things that are untrue. [ I would say credible. Magazine: Same type of thing only it would have to be a academic journal or magazine to provide anything newsworthy.
Credible Television: Can be fiction Not credible Movies : Also fiction. Not credible TV news: Credible The internet : I would say not credible depending on the site. Anyone can create a web site and what they say may be just their opinion. You would have to be careful in ensuring that the specific website is a credible source Advertising: Still bound by laws but have tricky ways of decieving people. I would say not credible. In the end i think that people publish information for money and they will try to get away with anything that is legally possible. ]

Weegy: Factors That Influence Creditability In this high competitive world one must incessantly evaluate the information one receives from news papers, magazines, television programs, movies, television news reporting, the internet and advertising. [ [ [ Frequent information presented to the public contains biases or misleading information that can persuade the public to take a position or action without reasonable cause. At times one can be mystified about what information to believe or distrust. Thus, knowing what factors influence the credibility of each source is essential. The vital factors that influence credibility of newspapers are the decline in newspaper sales, advertising, ownership of the newspaper agencies, and inaccuracy. Newspaper sales and readings are declining. This decline causes newspaper agencies to push for sales. The push for sales may cause journalists to over sensationalize stories to get the attention of readers. The newspaper agencies' fear of losing revenue from advertising influences what they do and do not print. Ownership of newspaper agencies can cause journalists to avoid printing harmful news about their owners. All too often newspaper readers find misspelled words, grammatical errors and factual errors in newspapers. One reason journalist give for these errors is, "...a combination of being "overworked" and "understaffed" is the major contributing factor to mistakes..." (The American Society of Newspaper Editors, 1999, p.1). The credibility of newspapers is also declining along with the creditability of other various media. ] ] ] (More)
