First, a discourse analysis of judicial press articles was conducted. On this base, judiciary writing style was manipulated in order to obtain three press articles (congruent, incongruent or extremised). Two experimental studies were conducted. In study 1 (N = 141), participants had to compare two articles and to evaluate their typicity. In study 2 (N = 140), participants read one article and made typicity and credibility evaluations. Results showed that stylistic conformity influence evaluation of the press article’s typicity and objectivity. The participants reading frequence only had little effect on results.
