Globally, one-third (34%) say they trust newspapers and magazines less than they did five years ago, compared to 17% who say they trust them more. Similarly, 34% say they trust TV and radio less vs. 18% more.

But people are increasingly escaping from the unwanted chatter and stimuli in their surroundings.
