It is part of a global research project involving 38 countries co-ordinated by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford. Digital News Report Australia Project leader, Dr Caroline Fisher said this year’s report offers good and bad news for the Australian news media. “On the downside, interest in news has fallen and the percentage of people prepared to pay for it remains low. There is also a perception among many that the news is too negative and more people are avoiding it.”
