Campbell Reid of News Corp does not believe that consumers’ trust in journalism has declined in recent years. However, he says that technologies companies such as Google and Facebook are solely responsible for any such decline in trust, and they need to take action to address this issue by removing fake news and ensuring that trusted news sources are given prominence on their platforms. Reid will be part of a panel discussion on trust in journalism at a conference in Hobart in September.
