Abstract

Disclosed herein is an improved mechanism for providing a reliability scoring approach of content sources that publish publications (e.g., articles, videos, and/or any other suitable type of publication). The mechanism can assign attributes to different publications, such as a name of a content source that published a publication, a subject of a publication, facts in a publication, etc. The mechanism can also assign an initial reliability score for each content source. The mechanism can randomly select two publications, and can identify the publication published by the content source with the lower reliability score. The system can then compare facts of the two publications, and can adjust the reliability score of the content source with the lower reliability score based on the comparison of facts.
