Some time ago, I had run into some Internet coverage about some WEF (World Economic Forum) report about institutions and their credibility rankings. I no longer remember where I had seen it mentioned, but the fact that such an article had appeared, had somehow stayed in the mind.
Today, in order to locate the source, I googled using the strings “WEF”, “Credibility” and “Media”. The following are a few links I got as a result of these searches. In each case, I first give the source organization, then the title of the article they published, and finally, the URL. Please note, all cover essentially the same story.
- Edelman, “2017 Edelman TRUST BAROMETER Reveals Global Implosion of Trust,” [^]
- Quartz, “The results are in: Nobody trusts anyone anymore,” [^]
- PostCard, “Must read! World Economic Forum releases survey on Indian media, the results are shameful!,” [^]
- TrollIndianPolitics, “`INDIAN MEDIA 2ND MOST UNTRUSTED INSTITUTION’ Reports WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM,” [^]
- Financial Express, “WEF Report: ‘India most trusted nation in terms of institutions’,” [^]
- Financial Times, “Public trust in media at all time low, research shows,” [^]
- WEF, “Why credibility is the future of journalism,” [^]
“Same hotel, two different prices…” … [Sorry, just couldn’t resist it!]
Oh, BTW, I gather that the report says that institutions in India are more credible as compared to those in Singapore.
Do click the links if you haven’t yet done so, already. [No, I don’t get paid for the clicks on the outgoing links.]
Still getting settled in the new job and the city. Some stuff still is to be moved. But guess it was time to slip in at least a short post. So there. Take care and bye for now.
