Overall, trust in news media increased over the past year and there was an increase in the number of people watching television news during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The authors of the Reuters Digital News Report (Ireland) 2021 say the high level of trust in RTÉ is possibly because of the central role the broadcaster has played during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The report, which is sponsored by the BAI with analysis from researchers at DCU, found that in general, levels of public trust in the news increased over the past year, while in Ireland, 53% of consumers expressed positive levels of trust in the news media.

This compares with 37% for the UK, 37% for North American and 45% for the EU.
