A recent study by the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri found that The Economist magazine was the most trusted news source for Americans. Also in the top 10 were the BBC and The Guardian newspaper.

The study partnered with 28 newsrooms in the U.S. that asked their audiences which media outlets the trusted the most.

In all 8,728 people to a questionnaire from the Reynolds Institute. Here are some patterns the study found:

Overall, more than two-thirds of respondents indicate they provide financial support to at least one news organization.

Liberal respondents are more likely to both trust and pay for the news than conservative respondents.

White respondents are more likely to both trust and pay for the news than nonwhite respondents.
