Reuters Institute Digital News Report 2020

Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism Annual Report - Nic Newman with Richard Fletcher, Anne Schulz, Simge Andı, and Rasmus Kleis Nielse

"...The bulk of this report is based on data collected by a survey of more than 80,000 people in 40 markets and reflects media usage in January/February just before the coronavirus hit many of these countries. But the key trends that we document here, including changes in how people access news, low trust, and rising concern about misinformation have been a backdrop against which journalists, editors, politicians, and public health officials have been battling to reach ordinary people with key messages over the last few months.

Given the richness of the research, this report can only convey a small part of the data collected and work done. More detail is available on our website, www.digitalnewsreport.org, which contains slidepacks and charts, along with a licence that encourages reuse, subject to attribution to the Reuters Institute.

Making all this possible, we are hugely grateful to our sponsors:
Google News Initiative, BBC News, Ofcom, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, the Dutch Media Authority (CvdM), the Media Industry Research Foundation of Finland, the Fritt Ord Foundation in Norway, the Korea Press Foundation, and
Edelman UK, as well as our academic sponsors at the Hans Bredow Institute, the University of Navarra, the University of Canberra, the Centre d’études sur les médias, Quebec, Canada, and Roskilde University in Denmark. We are particularly grateful to the Open Society Foundations, our newest sponsor, which has helped us to expand the report to cover more countries in the Global South this year.
We are also grateful to YouGov, our polling company, who did everything possible to accommodate our increasingly complex requirements and helped our research team analyse and contextualise the data..."
