Abstract

Media affects greatly many spheres of civil society life, however, preferences of people can shift with time due to technological innovations and cultural changes. In this paper using data from all-Russian survey provided in March 2017 it is shown that internet usage is strongly associated with lowering of trust to main TV channels (– 0.092) and increase in trust to online media to the same level. Therefore, main TV channels and online media could be interpreted as substitutes.
