Fort Worth Star-Telegram wants to improve trust in journalism and reaches out to readers for help

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is doing something every news outlet should be doing today. The newspaper is reaching out to readers via a survey to get their advice and gain their trust again.

“Your participation will help your local journalists and the journalism industry serve you better. With that in mind, would you be willing to meet with one of our journalists for one hour, at a place and time convenient for you, to discuss this further?” – FW Star-Telegram

We’ve all seen the studies that show that the majority of the public does not trust the press and it doesn’t help that President Trump calls us “fake news.” The Star-Telegram is making the right move. Check out the survey.

Today we need to know what readers, viewers, and listeners want and not what we believe they want.
