Myself, 9 classmates and 2 professors are heading to Prague this August. The course is Modern Media and Democracy, and each of us has chosen a focus topic related to the course. While in Prague, I will be reporting on the declining trust in the media. We are also comparing our findings to the United States.
For a take on American journalism, I interviewed WKYC anchor and former CBS anchor Russ Mitchell. I asked him about the Gallup poll that indicates 60% of the American public has little or no trust in the media to report the news fully, accurately and fairly (gallup.com/poll/157589/distrust-media-hits-new-high.aspx).
He gave his thoughts on the topic as a whole, as well as the contributing factors of political coverage and the Internet.
