Abstract:

Impacts of journalistic values, reflected in online news features, on readers' news selections were investigated. In a web-based field experiment, 366 German and American participants browsed through online news. The displayed articles were associated with different levels of newsworthiness (number of topic-related articles), credibility (sources' credibility established in a pretest), and recency (time span since report's upload). While newsworthiness perceptions did not increase with number of related articles in linear fashion, perceived high newsworthiness resulted in longer news exposure times. A complex interaction revealed that impacts of credibility on news consumption depended on cultural setting and frequency of online news reading. Recency only influenced American news readers.
