In all the countries where surveys were conducted, coronavirus has dramatically increased news consumption by the mainstream media. Online and television news sources have seen significant increases and more people have identified television as their main source of news, providing temporary respite from a picture of declining growth. Lockdowns have made it difficult to distribute printed newspapers. This has increased the transition to an electronic future. At the same time the use of the internet and social media has significantly has increased across all countries. WhatsApp had the highest growth overall, with increases of about 10% in some countries. More than half of those surveyed (51%) were part of an open or close online group to connect and share information , or be part of local support groups.

In all countries, the trust level in the media's coverage of COVID-19 was quite high in April 2020. This is comparable to the levels of national governments but is much more than the individual politicians. The trust in media was more than twice the level of trust for social media or video platforms, as well as messaging services when it came to information on COVID-19. The general concern over misinformation remains high as per the larger dataset we collected in January. Over half of our worldwide sample expressed concerns about the truth or falsity of the internet's news content even prior to the coronavirus epidemic. Domestic politicians are the single most often cited source of inaccurate information, although in certain nations - like the United States - people who self-identify as right-wing are more likely to blame the media. part of an 'pick-your-side' mentality.

Facebook is seen as the main platform for disseminating false information all over the world, but WhatsApp is considered to be more accountable in certain regions of the Global South like Brazil as well as Malaysia.

In our January poll across all countries, less than four in ten (38%) said they trust most news at least a majority often - a fall of four percentage points from 2019. The news they use is not trusted by more than half of those surveyed (46%) Particularly, broadcasters who have lost support from left - and right-leaning political partisans seem to be under threat by the growing political conflict. Our research suggests that 60 percent of people still prefer news without any particular opinion and only 28 percent would prefer news to reinforce or share their opinions. Although partisan preferences in the United States have slightly increased from 2013 to 2013, our study finds that the majority of Americans still favor news that is objective or that shares their opinions.

A majority (52%) prefer that media would be more prominent in reporting false claims made to them by politicians, rather than not highlighting them (29%). People are less comfortable with political adverts via social media or search engines than they are with the political ads on television, and majority of them (58 percent) prefer that platforms stop adverts that might contain false claims, even if this means they ultimately have to decide on what's true. We have seen significant increases in online news payments across a variety of countries, including the United States 20% (+4) and Norway 42 percent (+8), with small increases in a number of other markets. It is worth noting that nearly all countries are not paying for online news although certain publishers have reported a "coronavirus bump".

The decision to sign up for the newsletter is an indication of confidence. One of the most crucial thing is the authenticity and quality of the content. Subscribers think they get more information. But, many are satisfied with news that they get free of charge. We also see an overwhelming number of non-subscribers (45% in the USA and 50% here in the UK) who claim that they were not convinced to pay. Countries with higher payment rates (e.g. Norway as well as the USA in which a higher percentage of subscriptions go to major national brands), about a third and half, respectively. In both countries, a large percentage of subscribers have added more than one subscription to their current ones. For radio Alba Iulia A Romanian commercial radio station, they offer an agenda that is centered around 60 percent news from all fields , and 40 percent music. With their current programming the principal elements that draw the attention of the audience older than 30 are met: news programs that are from the county, as well as specialized talks and shows. They enjoy stories, contests, and interviews, as well as cultural programs music, debates, and entertainment.

In the majority of countries local newspapers and websites remain the top source of news on specific regions or towns, reaching four in 10 (44%) weekly. Our study shows that Facebook along with other social media platforms, are currently used at an average of around one quarter (31 percent), to provide local news and information. This creates more pressure on businesses and their business model. News is now more widely available. Just over 25% prefer to begin their news experience through an app or a website across all nations. Generation Z, 18-24 year olds, have a weaker relationship with websites and apps. They are twice as likely as others to prefer social media as a source of news. Instagram has seen an increase in news-sharing across all age groups. It is possible that Instagram will surpass Twitter within the next 12 months.

Publishers are trying to combat the shift to different platforms by creating close connections with their customers via email and mobile alerts to counter this trend. The staggering figure of 21 percent American adults access a weekly news-email. For almost half of them it is the primary method of accessing information. Northern European countries have been much slower to embrace news via email channels with just 10% of people using news via email in Finland. The number of podcast users has increased significantly over the past year, however coronavirus lockdowns may temporarily reverse this trend. In all countries the majority of respondents (50 percent) claim that podcasts give more understanding and depth over other media. Spotify is currently the most popular podcast platform in several markets, surpassing Apple's podcast application.

The majority (69 percent) of people surveyed believe that climate change to be an issue that is serious. But there are vast divergences in opinions in Australia, Sweden, the United States, and Australia. The majority of this group is right-wingers as well as older. These groups that are younger can gain access to more climate-related information through social media, and also by following activists such as Greta Thunberg. Amazon Echo, Google Home and other voice-activated smart assistants are continuing to grow in popularity. The use of these devices for all purposes has increased by 14 percent to 19 percent (UK), 7% to 12 percent in Germany, and 9 to 13% South Korea. But, news consumption remains in the low range in all markets.
