Knight Foundation Study Shares Attitudes Toward Local News

Knight Foundation’s Trust, Media and Democracy initiative with Gallup conducted a recent study, “State of Public Trust in Local News.” It “sheds light on what Americans value about local media outlets, and the areas they think need improvement,” finding that “local news remains more trusted than national news,” but “this trust advantage is tenuous and in danger of falling prey to the same forces eroding trust in the national news media.”

The press release continues, “Overwhelmingly, Americans value local news outlets, believe they are doing their job well and do a better job than national news outlets at reporting without bias and covering news they can use in their daily life. … [But w]hen compared with other local institutions, local news organizations are among the least trusted—ranking below public libraries and local law enforcement, and only ahead of local government.”

For more information, read the press release.
