"The British people simply don’t trust the media", @jeremycorbyn said in his
Alternative MacTaggart Lecture at @EdinburghTVFest. A bit of @risj_oxford data for those interested.

1) Trust in news is lower in UK than many other countries, 20th of the 37 we surveyed in 2018.
2) Many online news users in the UK are also very or extremely concerned over what they see as "stories where facts are twisted to push an agenda" (55%) and "poor journalism" (51%) -- just as 44% are concerned over "the use of the term ‘fake news’ to discredit news media"
3) So, if overall trust is low, and many are concerned that much of what they see is biased and shoddy? At the brand level, people trust the BBC/ITV/Ch4, regional/local papers, upmarket papers like the Times, but not digital-born sites or mid-market/popular newspapers.
All that data and more in our 2018 Digital News Report by @nicnewman et al, available at for free download, interactive graphics etc.
