    Vertrauen in den Journalismus - Wie Redaktionen das Vertrauen ihres Publikums erhalten und steigern. Eine qualitative Analyse auf Basis eines integrativen Modells.

    Supervisor

    Journalisten sehen sich immer häufiger mit öffentlichen Vorwürfen konfrontiert - insbesondere in Zeiten von "Lügenpresse" und "Fake News" wird die Vertrauenswürdigkeit des Journalismus hinterfragt. Für Redaktionen bedeutet dies, dass sie Maßnahmen ergreifen müssen, um ihre Vertrauenswürdigkeit zu demonstrieren und so das Vertrauen ihres Publikums zu erhalten und möglicherweise sogar zu steigern. Wie Redaktionen vorgehen, untersucht diese Dissertation auf Basis qualitativer Fallstudien ausgewählter Medienhäuser.
