Trust the news? Most people don't, social media even more suspect - study
- Most people don't trust the mainstream media and are even more suspicious of social media, a survey revealed on Thursday, though it said social networks were vital for under-reported stories such as LGBT and migrant issues.
The latest Digital News Report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism found high scepticism about news and comment, with 33 percent of more than 70,000 consumers polled in 36 countries saying they can't rely on the news to be true.
Only 24 percent of people said social media did a good job separating fact from fiction, compared to 40 percent for mainstream media.
