IN 2016, the Israel Democracy Institute’s Democracy Index pointed to an all-time low in Israeli public trust in the media. In 2017, however, it seems that that trend has reversed, with public trust reaching 28%, representing a rise of 4%.

The survey was conducted among a random sample of 1,024 respondents by a research team headed by Prof. Tamar Hermann of the IDI’s Guttman Center for Public Opinion and Policy Research.
