Based on True Events: the Effects of Veracity on the Consumption Experience

This research explores how the belief a story did or did not happen in reality (i.e., veracity) affects consumers’ experience of a narrative. We find that knowing a narrative is based on true events intensifies viewers’ moment-to-moment affective reactions. Further, veracity is found to influence online review ratings.
