At the same time, Australians are more likely to think the news media are doing a good job keeping them up to date and explaining what’s happening.
These findings are contained in the Digital News Report: Australia 2019. In its fifth year, the Digital News Report Australia is part of a 38-country survey coordinated by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford.
