I wanted to point out story from the BBC that looks at the trust people put in media. It’s the findings of a study that found, on the whole, people tend to trust what the media tells them more than what their governments tell them. More than 10k people in 10 countries were surveyed.
Just three percent of respondents said that blogs were their main news source. And, 25 percent of respondents said they trusted what they learned from blogs, while 23 percent said they distrust blogs. This is a stat we should track. I wonder how the split will be 12 months from now?
