The survey was conducted among Russians aged 18 to 60 living in cities with a population of 100,000 or more. The results of the study are cited by Kommersant.
Thus, according to the survey, if in mid-March a third of Russians (33% of respondents) said that they trust television more than other sources of information, then by the end of April the level of trust in this source has decreased. Only 23% of respondents trust television.
At the same time, it is significant that the most rapid decline in trust in this source of information was in small towns.
Among the residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg, the level of trust was already low. If in March 27% of respondents from capital cities trusted television, by April this figure dropped to 21%.
Trust in official Internet resources is also decreasing. Only 26% of Russians polled considered them reliable in March, and 23% in April.
The share of Russians who trust information from blogs and Telegram channels, on the contrary, is growing. Since March, it has grown from 19% to 23%.
