  • We've talked about who watches, reads or listens to news, now we'll talk about the content

  • We not only wanted to discover Canadian perceptions about these issues, we wanted to be able to compare Canadian attitudes with American attitudes on credibility and trust issues so we used several questions that the Pew Research Center for the People and Press have been asking Americans for over 30 years

  • Our results go from grim to mediocre to good

  • We'll start with media accuracy

  • Studies in the United States have found accuracy is the foundation of news credibility—accuracy is defined as factual errors, and subjective errors such as over-emphasis, under-emphasis, or other omissions

  • Credibility in general includes accuracy, but also involves fairness, bias, and impartiality
