We offer a computable model for the dynamic assessment of sources trustworthiness based on their popularity, knowledge-ability, and reputation. We apply it to the debate among medical experts in Italy during three distinct phases of the SARS-CoV-19 pandemic, and validate it against a dataset of newspaper articles. The model shows promising results in the analysis of expert debates their impact on public opinion.
