Building trust with local audiences
In this era of misinformation it can be hard to know who to trust. A 2016 Gallup poll showed only 32 percent of Americans had “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in the news media. As a local news source, we look to work with our audience to build trust in our newsroom, respond to concerns and increase news literacy among Iowans. We also support local schools’ news literacy with our newspapers in education programming as part of our access fund. Along the way, we want to hear from you about how we’re doing.
