4. Partisans remain sharply divided in many views toward the news media; stark differences between Trump’s strongest supporters, critics

Category: روزنامه نگار No comments

A major takeaway of the first phase of this yearlong study was that partisan dynamics are the strongest factor in Americans’ trust in the news media and other related concepts. The findings here reinforce that conclusion: Republicans, and especially strong Trump supporters, consistently express more negative sentiments about the news media.

There are a few places, though, where there is somewhat more agreement, including opinions about whether the news media should be approached with skepticism, perceptions of whether confidence in the institution can increase, and important factors that draw people to their key sources of news.

Republicans are more negative than Democrats in views of the news media’s role in society

Across a range of attitudes toward the news media, Republicans and t...

5. Black Americans see representation as key in determining how they stay informed

Category: روزنامه نگار No comments

People in different subgroups within the U.S. population often have different views of, relationships with and priorities for the news media. Partisanship is among the strongest divides, with Republicans expressing much more negativity toward the media than Democrats (see Chapter 4). But striking divisions also emerge between other groups in the country, including racial and ethnic groups, age groups, and people who rely on different pathways for political news – particularly when that pathway is social media.

Black, Hispanic and White Americans often have different perspectives as they navigate the information environment to get news they trust. Black adults have clear priorities, which are different from those of White adults, in what they look for in their news sources.

Black Americans more likely to see representation in news and the newsroom as an important way they connect with news sources

ASD was established as the Defence Signals Bur...

Quarantine guests say hotel rooms weren’t cleaned, let alone deep cleaned

Category: کارما No comments

Complaints about cleanliness at the Travelodge quarantine hotels in Sydney are a symptom of wider issues within an unregulated cleaning industry, according to a cleaning insider.

Darryl Soekoe runs a commercial cleaning company in Melbourne that since March has been cleaning sites with COVID-positive cases.

“You could say cleaners are the new shock troops of the COVID war because we are the ones that are taking the fight to COVID,” he told 7.30.

“But the cleaning industry is similar to other sorts of low-entry industries.

“There’s not much training out there. There’s not much guidance out there.

“In a way, it’s a race to the bottom.”

NSW Police removed The Travelodge from Sydney’s hotel quarantine program last week, following an increase in complaints from guests.

The hotel ...
