Study Tackles Seeking Trust Online

A new American study about trust and deception online has found that the majority of conservatives and liberals believe that "fake news" will impact the 2020 U.S. presidential election

Interesting, 22% of respondents considered news reporters to be slightly less trustworthy than "scammers."

A majority also believed content to be trustworthy if it was corroborated by multiple sources.

Predictably, there was a split across party lines. For example, the study found that 81.8% of liberals trust news publications whereas only 48.1 of conservatives do.

And what platform is most responsible for the spread of "fake news"? A small minority of liberals (52.3%) believed that social media was the main source of misinformation. And 46.9% of conservatives believed that news outlets and reporters were most responsible.

You can read about the methodology used in the study here.
