Digital News Report 2021

This study has been commissioned by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism to understand how news is being consumed in a range of countries. This is the tenth edition of the Digital News Report and covers 46 markets, more than half the world’s population.

The findings show how, if anything, the Coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated many of the long-term trends Reuters Institute has documented over the past decade, especially the move to a more digital, mobile, and platform-dominated media environment. Developments this year put further pressure on the business models of many traditional media, but have also reminded at least parts of the public of the importance and value of trustworthy news from independent news organisations.
