Authenticity . It is important to make sure that the source is exactly what it is. However, this is not the same as whether the information is true or not (although this is often related). An example of a fake page might be a page that is supposedly created by someone or represents someone's opinion, even though it is not actually associated with that person.
Proximity . If the information requested is about current information, it is important to know the time of the source (alternatively, the most recent update). Sometimes published material is out of date, but not always, especially when it comes to timeless content. For example, on Wikipedia, articles are not dated by publication date, which is rather a disadvantage because there is a good chance that they will be updated later.
Dependent . Is it an independent source or is it affiliated with a company that is somewhat driven by its interests? The content of independent sources is often colored. It can also happen that a news communicator avoids writing negative things about a company because there is a position of dependency, such as when the company is one of the news communicator's advertisers.
