Toronto, Jan. 26, 2017 - How are Canadians getting their news, and whom do they trust to provide it? How do perceptions differ between social media and mainstream news organizations? Does the government have a role in aiding struggling news outlets? The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF), in partnership with the Public Policy Forum (PPF), explores Canadians’ attitudes towards the media in a public opinion poll, conducted by Earnscliffe Strategy Group for PPF’s study THE SHATTERED MIRROR: News, Democracy, Policy and Trust.
To explore what the results mean for the future of news in Canada, Christopher Waddell, associate professor at the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University and a member of the CJF Board, was in conversation with Edward Greenspon, president and CEO of the Public Policy Forum; Allan Gregg, principal with Earnscliffe Strategy Group; and April Lindgren, associate professor at Ryerson University School of Journalism and principal investigator for the Local News Research Project.
