We're even more cynical about the media than we were 12 months ago. And The Daily Telegraph has extended its "lead" as Australia's least-trusted major newspaper.
New polling from Essential Research shows Australia's most trusted media outlet remains ABC television news and current affairs: 70% of voters have some or a lot of trust in it, including 21% who say they have "a lot of trust". But that's down three points from January of this year. SBS television news and current affairs is also trusted, with 65% of voters having some or a lot of trust. ABC radio news and current affairs scored 63% for some or a lot of trust, but that's down seven points since January.
