Trusting News Project Report - Reynolds Journalism Institute

Trusting News Project Report 2017

A Reynolds Journalism Institute research project

Michael W. Kearney


SUMMARY: With reports of “fake news” during the 2016 election and the President of the United States referring to the media as “the enemy of the people,” journalists are facing new questions about public trust in news organizations. For instance, in today’s highly charged political climate, which news sources are trusted and which ones are not? And to what degree does media trust explain individual decisions to financially support news organizations? This report—commissioned on behalf of the Trusting News project by the Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) at the University of Missouri—sheds light on this topic. The goal of the Trusting News project is to better understand elements of trust and distrust in the relationship between journalists and nonjournalists. Toward this end, the Trusting News project worked with 28 newsrooms to collect data from different media audiences from across the United States. This report provides a description of the data and summarizes the results from statistical analysis of the data.
