This paper presents a new argument for the likelihood ratio measure of confirmation by showing that one of the adequacy criteria used in another argument (Zalabardo 2009) can be replaced by a more plausible and better supported criterion which is a special case of the weak likelihood principle. This new argument is also used to show that the likelihood ratio measure is also to be preferred not to a measure that has recently received support in the literature.
