The Russians' confidence in television has dropped

Almost three quarters of Russians learn information from TV news, and almost half of respondents trust them. The level of trust in television fell by 30 percent in nine years. This became known from the survey of the Levada Center, reports the newspaper Vedomosti, owned by the family of Demyan Kudryavtsev.

However, among the respondents aged 18 to 24, 49 percent chose television as their main source of information, and 54 percent preferred Internet to the rest of the media. Among respondents older than 55 years, the indices are 89 and 18 percent, respectively. On average, the proportion of those who learn news from the Internet has grown from nine to 37 percent. Trust them only 24 percent of Russians. On news from social networks 15 percent of citizens rely.

"Confidence in officialdom is falling, especially among young and more educated people. It's not a matter of technology or modernization, which happens on television, it's about giving information, more reflexivity and criticality, "said the organization's director Lev Gudkov. In addition, fatigue is added from anti-Western propaganda, he clarifies.
