Research Methodology: Alternatives, Optimal Choice, and the Rationale
Validity and Robustness of the Model

From the Paper:

"It would also be beneficial to test sub-hypotheses that support the main hypothesis so as to understand if the data is given contradictory results. For example, the main hypothesis is testing whether network news has a liberal bias. Sub-hypotheses can measure specific liberal biases, such as the treatment of the war on Iraq, views about social security or taxes in general, and opinions on leadership in the country. If the main hypothesis is tested and it is proven that there is a liberal bias, then these sub-hypotheses, should also slant towards a liberal view on network news, if not, then the main hypothesis is not supported and may need another methodological approach."
