Survey Finds Journalists Look to Academia for Expertise

December 6, 2018

Muck Rack recently released the findings from its Financial Services Journalist Survey.

Among the questions, the finance journalists were asked: Which of the following do you consider to be credible sources for your reporting?

Leading the list of eight choices was academic subject matter experts, at nearly 92 percent. Industry CEOs/executives came in second at 89 percent.
