discussion in 2017. We understand now how trust in media and other
institutions can be destroyed. What’s not clear is how to bring it back

Journalists in many countries are experimenting with how to build trust
and engage with audiences, and our report examines their efforts. In our
study, Bridging the Gap: Rebuilding Citizen Trust in the Media
, commissioned by the Open Society Foundation’s Program on Independent

We surveyed 17 organizations and conducted interviews with

Krautreporter and Correct!v in Germany, as well as Bristol Cable in the
UK. The report also includes an annotated bibliography of academic
studies on media trust and media literacy and a list of ongoing
initiatives as well as sidebars on past efforts to boost media
