Victoria University's annual survey on trust in New Zealand showed that only one in ten has complete or a lot of trust in our media while more than a third had little trust and 12 per cent had none at all.

The Edelman Trust Barometer for 2019 showed that fewer than one in four New Zealanders rated journalists as very or extremely credible.

Media commentator, and former editor-in-chief at the New Zealand Herald, Gavin Ellis, has penned a piece which outlines what he hopes the media will accomplish in 2020
