Umfragen zeigen, dass das Vertrauen in die Massenmedien und den Journalismus auf dem europäischen Kontinent in den letzten Jahren massiv gesunken ist: Junge Iren haben einen noch zynischeren Blick auf die Medien als die Briten. Einer DIE ZEIT-Umfrage zufolge haben 60 Prozent der Deutschen wenig oder kein Vertrauen in die Massenmedien. Ukrainische und russische TV-Kanäle sind Teil einer mächtigen Kriegspropaganda, was unabhängigen Journalismus in diesen Regionen fast unmöglich macht. 

Das Panel diskutiert Erfahrungen aus mehreren europäischen Perspektiven und greift verschiedene Aspekte des Vertrauensverlustes in die Medien auf. Professoren Haller, Pleios und Granado präsentieren Ergebnisse ihrer Forschung zum Thema Medienkultur. Gemma O'Doherty, eine investigative Reporterin, die nach der Aufdeckung eines Korruptionskandals ihren Job verlor, spricht als Akteurin. 

Surveys show that in many European countries, trust in the mass media and journalism has eroded dramatically in recent years. Young Irish people take an even more cynical view of the media than the British. Sixty percent of Germans have little or no confidence in the mass media, according to a survey by DIE ZEIT newspaper. Ukrainian and Russian television channels have become part of powerful war propaganda machines, creating distrust everywhere. 

The panel discusses experiences from different European perspectives and searches for ways to address this complex situation. Professors Haller, Pleios and Granado draw on their research to present a clear picture, and Gemma O'Doherty, an investigative reporter who lost her job after exposing corruption, give the journalistic perspective.
