Finding Value in the Truth
Learning about trust today is nothing like learning about trust a generation ago. You were once taught that the paper printed the real story, the evening reporter shared valid information and that “gossip” was unreliable. A fairly recent study exposed a small town value on their local paper and online media. It shows a confusion that has set in when it comes to trusting a familiar medium like newspapers versus online journalism. People seem very confused as to how trustworthy the internet can be and even in declining numbers, the newspaper had a small advantage in the small town.
