The Daily Telegraph is no longer Australia's least trusted newspaper, a title it has held since July 2011.

According to Essential Trust in Media figures released today, the Sydney tabloid rag is the most trusted it has been in five years. While only 10% of readers said they had "a lot" of trust in The Daily Telegraph, nearly half, 46%, said they had "some" trust in the paper. The result gives it an aggregate figure of 56% who trust the paper, which isn't a bad figure at all, putting it only 10% behind The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, both on 66%.
