AP Study: Editor-reader Gap in News Sites


The Associated Press Managing Editors released their Online Journalism Credibility Study Tuesday in conjunction with the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri.

According to the AP, “The study was designed to help gauge the priorities and practices newspapers should be establishing as they increasingly blend their print and Web operations.”

One of the noteworthy news nuggets: “Some 70% of editors surveyed said requiring commenters to disclose their identities would support good journalism, while only 45% of the public did. Similarly, 58% of editors said letting journalists join online conversations and give personal views would harm journalism, but only 36% of the public agreed.”
