Reuter’s Digital News Report 2018 – Significant Development.

What I consider the most significant development would be the fact that the trust in the news is still very low. Due to the fact that ‘news’ is altered by people of higher authority in order to gain favour or influence. The news should be just facts and should not be changed to suit other people’s benefits. This is an important development because I feel that the news has an important job to inform its audience important updates without being influenced whether it being on a global or local scale. People should be able to make their own decisions and not have a set mindset due to figures like politicians having moulded the news to fit their views and beliefs.

If we, as journalists, cannot connect with our audience then how do we expect to do a good job at telling other people’s stories?
