New Publication: Generational Gaps in Media Trust and its Antecedents in Europe
News from Sep 15, 2021
Jakob Ohme has co-authored a study together with Anna Brosius and Claes de Vreese (University of Amsterdam) on media trust differences between generations that was recently published in International Journal of Press/Politics.
The study "Generational Gaps in Media Trust and its Antecedents in Europe" is based on survey data from ten European countries and investigates, whether growing up around debates on ‘fake news’ leads to different levels of media trust. Results show no strong differences of media trust between generations, but bias-free and accurate journalism appear to be less important predictors of media trust among Millennials and Generation Z.
