TV is Still Main Source of Information for Russians

Television is the main source of news for Russians, although they are less inclined to trust it than in 2009, the Levada Center independent pollster reveals.

      According to the recently released poll, 88 percent of Russians named TV as their primary source of news, which is six percentage points less from a similar poll conducted in 2009.

      Other popular news sources include friends and neighbors (at 24 percent compared to 26 percent in 2009), the Internet (up 12 percentage points to 21 percent), newspapers (down 17 percentage points to 20 percent), and radio (down 35 percentage points to 16 percent).

      In 2009 79 percent of those surveyed said they trust information on TV, this figure has fallen to just 51 percent this year. Meanwhile, the number of people polled who say they trust news they read on the Internet has doubled in the past four years, but remains relatively small, at 14 percent.

      The Levada Center surveyed a total of 1,601 people over 18 years of age between June 20 and June 24 in 43 regions of Russia. Respondents were allowed to give multiple answers.
