Online Credibility Survey in Dallas

Belo Interactive, in conjunction with the Associated Press Managing Editors and the Ford Foundation, recently conducted an online news survey on the credibility of online news sources. Questions were prepared by Southern Methodist University professors Chris Peck and Camille Kraeplin.

A total of 1,649 people voluntarily participated in the non-scientific survey after accessing it through links from the front pages of four Belo-operated Web sites: The Dallas Morning News; WFAA-TV; Texas Cable News; and The Denton Record-Chronicle.

In a story summarizing the findings, they note: “The online survey is qualitative only and not a scientific representation of Dallas Web site usersí views. However, the survey results mirror the views of most Dallas Web site users who recently responded to a scientific survey conducted by a marketing and research firm on behalf of Belo Interactive.”

Interesting key findings

Disclosure: We worked for Belo Interactive from Jan 1998 to Feb of 2001.
