People Generally Trusts The Media More Than Their Governments

This is an interesting nugget of information from BBC News. According to an international poll of more than ten thousand respondents in ten countries, 61% of respondents said they trust the media compared to only 52% who stated they trust their government‘s account on things.

Also worth noting is the finding that traditional media (newspapers, TV and radio news) is still overwhelmingly preferred over online news sources.

Interestingly, the report also mentioned that internationally 48% of respondents said they trusted the BBC, while 44% backed CNN.
