On June 10 the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) and Gallup hosted a research briefing on media use in Vietnam.
Vietnam’s government-run television network continues to dominate the country’s media landscape. However, young Vietnamese increasingly turning to online news sources over state TV. Most Vietnamese (58.2%) believe personal blogs are more believable than official news, pointing to an underlying distrust of state media, particularly among younger and better-educated adults who are most likely to use blogs and other online information sources.
The speakers drew on recent BBG data to assess the role of different media platforms in Vietnam as well as review attitudinal data from the Gallup World Poll. Speakers include:
- Chris Stewart, Partner, Gallup
- Bruce Sherman, Director, Office of Strategy and Development, BBG
- Betsy Henderson, Director of Research, Training and Evaluation, Radio Free Asia
- Rajesh Srinivasan, Regional Research Director, Asia and Middle East, Gallup
