In this paper, we propose a method for mediatory summarization, which is a novel technique for facilitating users’ assessments of the credibility of infor- mation on the Web. A mediatory sum- mary is generated by extracting a pas- sage from Web documents; this sum- mary is generated on the basis of its relevance to a given query, fairness, and density of keywords, which are fea- tures of the summaries constructed to determine the credibility of informa- tion on the Web. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the generated me- diatory summary in comparison with the summaries of Web documents pro- duced by Web search engines.
