The Credibility of News and Current Affairs Programmes

News and current affairs programmes broadcast by Polsat and Polsat News were seen to be the most reliable: almost two fifths of the people surveyed (38%) considered them to be trustworthy, with 17% being of the opposite view. Positive assessments also dominated when it came to the news and current affairs programmes emitted by TVN and TVN24, with a total of 36% of respondents finding them trustworthy, but 27% questioning their reliability. Decidedly the worst assessments were gained by the news and current affairs programmes of the public broadcaster, and these have been getting progressively worse over time. This year’s survey showed trust in their reliability at a level of 25% (a drop of 6 percentage points since 2019). At the same time the percentage of respondents who saw them as untrustworthy or downright lacking in credibility rose from 38% to 49%.

More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (375) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 16 – 26 August 2021 inclusive on a sample of 1167 people (62.4% using the CAPI method, 23.5% CATI and 14.1% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
