Journalists vs Public Perception - Interruption Management

Survey Finds Huge Gap Between Press and Public on Many Issues
By Joe Strupp, a senior editor at Editor & Publisher

A survey released in May, 2005 revealed a wide gap on many media issues between a group of journalists and the general public:

* In one finding, 43% of the public say they believe the press has too much freedom, while only 3% of journalists agree.

* Six in ten among the public feel the media show bias in reporting the news, and 22% say the government should be allowed to censor the press.

* More than 7 in 10 journalists believe the media does a good or excellent job on accuracy--but only 4 in 10 among the public feel that way.

* 53% of the public think that stories with unnamed sources should not be published at all.

Here at the end of 2011, these divisions in perception have become even more pronounced!
