Poles do not believe in good media intentions, every third does not trust public media

65 percent Poles do not trust the information read in newspapers, 67 percent do not believe what they hear on the radio and television. Every third Pole does not trust public media - according to a survey carried out by Ipsos. - We are critical of the public and commercial media, it depends on what political views we have - comments for the media portal Wirtualnemedia.pl media expert Maciej Myśliwiec.

Ipsos 'Trust in Media' annual survey covered media recipients in 27 countries around the world. It turned out that not only Poles do not trust the media - people in all the countries studied were divided as to whether they trusted traditional information relays. - But the level of trust in the media varies at the level of various countries - we read in the introduction to the report. IPSOS points to two decisive factors: the dissemination of false information without verification and the doubts we have about the intentions of the media.

65 percent of Poles do not believe what they will read in the newspaper. Only Serbia residents (88%) Hungarians (76%) have 67% less confidence in newspapers. Polish recipients are distrustful of information coming from radio and television. In this category we occupy the penultimate place - worse is only trust in this matter in Serbia.

62 percent Poles do not trust the information posted on websites (52% do not trust, 10% "definitely do not trust"). As much as 47 percent of surveyed Poles stated that they recognize fake news published in the press (average in the survey - 52%), 53% identifies them on television and radio (here the average is also 52 percent), while 56 percent Poles identify fake messages on the Internet (with an overall average of 62%).

More than half of Poles asked by Ipsos (56%) declared that they believed in the information provided to them by people they know. 17% she replied that she "definitely trusts them." One of the questions also concerned the validity of information provided by the media. 54 percent in this category Poles replied that newspapers inform about important and necessary matters, and 58 percent. respondents indicated the importance of information from television.

The report's authors emphasize that opinions around the world whether public broadcasters can be trusted more than private broadcasters are strongly divided. - In India, Peru, Sweden and Germany, respondents trust public broadcasters more. On the other hand, in Hungary and Poland, most media recipients trust more private broadcasters. These results indicate that a global trend in trust in broadcasters cannot be outlined, but the level of trust depends on the country-specific situation of the organization and control of broadcasting services - we read in the report's summary.

According to media expert Maciej Myśliwec, the report shows that Poles are critical of all media, without distinguishing between private and public. - It all depends on which side of the political scene they have located their views on. However, the lack of confidence in the media at all may be due to the fact that they are disappointed with information received from mass channels. This information is fast, unproven, because the author depends on the time. She is often sloppy - she comments in an interview with Wirtualnemedia.pl.

The fighter is not surprised by the fact that we trust information from a loved one more than from the media. - It is based on strictly cultural issues: relatives should simply be trusted. Nevertheless, we should remember that it is not known where our relatives get information and whether something they have given us is credible. It is very difficult today to separate fake news about true information and not everyone is competent to do so.

The study was conducted in 27 countries around the world via the Ipsos Online system. The reporting countries in this release are: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia , South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States. Between January 25 and February 8 this year 19,541 people aged 16-74 were interviewed.

There are no public media, there are state media with Bolshevik roots, acting at the expense of the sovereign against his will. What commercialism does is medium interesting because it does it on its own.

Poles complain about everything, not only about public and private media. Whatever happens, it's always bad. This is our worst national feature. Of the two bad guys, I prefer to turn on TVP sometimes and listen that it is good, that something goes well than TVN, where it has been very bad in Poland since autumn 2015. Neither of them tell the full truth, but I assume that in life you need to look for positive in every situation.

I absolutely do not trust the information departments of TVP and Polish Radio and PAP. The only thing I watch on TVP - quiz shows and Studio East and on Polish Radio - Niedźwiecki and Baron's List
