Crowdsourcing trusted news sources can work — but not the way Facebook says it’ll do it » Nieman Journalism Lab

my notes ( ? )

crowdsourced trustworthiness ratings are actually much less effective if they exclude the ratings from people who are unfamiliar with a given site. Which is what Facebook plans to do.. “a lack of familiarity is an important cue for untrustworthiness... Excluding ratings from participants who aren’t familiar with a given news source ... “dramatically reduces the difference between mainstream media sources and hyperpartisan or fake news sites.”...
findings fit with an “initially skeptical” rather than “initially agnostic” model of media trust... people initially assume that a news source they haven’t heard of before is untrustworthy. “The default is to not trust... It’s not that ... being familiar with something makes you trust it... Breitbart or Infowars ... familiarity ratings are higher than their trust ratings...
“accuracy trumps in-group favoritism... motivated reasoning, partisan bias stuff ... is just a little overdone... it’s like a second-order thing.
