Here I propose a theoretical framework where the news released by media outlets is pre-

sented as an exogenous public signal which can be drawn from the ”reliable” or ”unreli-

able” distribution. Citizens tend to discuss the credibility of the news among themselves

and it leads to the following results: (i) improbable news does not make regime more or

less attackable as it is perceived by agents as pure noise and (ii) interchange of views on

how much news is trustworthy makes the regime more assailable if mild anti- or pro-regime

news is circulated.
