Study highlights:

Not surprisingly, sources from industry are key to any news story involving the oil sands. Journalists rely on sources from specific companies directly involved in oil sands development for announcements, updates and information about ongoing operations.

14 out of 20 respondents said the expect industry sources to have up-to-date knowledge and specific data.

Half of the journalists we spoke with in our study said they value honesty in sources and don’t want to only be given the company line (spin) by spokespeople.
