Survey: Journalism seen as less important and less trustworthy profession

Journalism and the media are seen as less important and less reliable than in the past, according a new study released Sunday by the University of Haifa.

The survey was conducted by Prof. Jonathan Cohen and Dr. Oren Livio of the Department of Communication Studies ahead of the second annual Haifa Communications Conference, set to take place on January 29th.

According to the findings, only 11% of the Israeli public would want their children to become journalists, compared to 25% in 2007.
