Online news takes over but burned consumers look to trusted sources, UC report finds

Description

With online news overtaking traditional sources, a growing exposure to ‘fake news’ is undermining trust in news generally and driving consumers to established brands and tailored feeds, according to a new University of Canberra report.

The Digital News Report Australia 2018 published annually by the University of Canberra’s News and Media Research Centre (N&MRC) shows that for the first time, access to online news (82 per cent) has overtaken traditional offline sources such as newspapers, TV and radio (79 per cent).
