Abstract:This paper examines the automation of editorial curation of online news and blog articles based on reader ratings. Websites usually provide no guidelines on how to evaluate and rate articles; the NewsTrust project explores how doing so could improve rating precision. Building on and expanding from existing, but incomplete, research, I describe simulations of article comparison to determine how many reader ratings are necessary to distinguish between articles.
