The trust point puzzles me as it seems to me that Kevin Marsh is absolutely right to point out how little the public trust journalists. (Only politicians rate worse in the MORI trust barometer.)

It seems to me that this is a key point in the question of whether the public is willing to pay for the output of journalists - if you don't trust it, why pay for it?

But in nearly all the debates about paywalls, future of journalism etc. the public's lack of trust in journalism barely gets a mention.

By contrast, the public's lack of trust in politicians (the ones vying with journalism for bottom spot in the trust league) gets mentioned in nearly every debate about the future of politics. That makes the silence in the journalism debates all the odder by contrast.
