|Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Communication::Communication theories and models||Issue Date:||2019||Abstract:||This study uses the framework of Social Judgement Theory (SJT) to understand how attitudes affect belief in fake news and corrections. The study revealed that the SJT concepts of ego-involvement, discrepancy and correction ambiguity predict belief in a correction, and belief in a correction subsequently predicts a decrease in fake news belief. Hence, this study has uncovered the ideal conditions for designing and targeting effective corrections to decrease fake news belief.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/76580||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
