Abstract

This report finds that Australians are prepared to trust the news generally, and there has not been any dramatic slump in trust in news compared to previous studies. Survey respondents also had a sophisticated understanding of different major news brands. At the same time, news organisations need to take seriously expectations of greater accountability and transparency in their news reporting, particularly where actual or potential conflicts of interests exist.
