This study is a part of a research project about trials to spread information on developing countries through multimedia (see SND 0146). The purpose of this survey was to describe some important characteristics of people within the daily press who are responsible for the foreign material. Some of the questions dealt with evaluation of news, problem awareness in relation to the work, opinions on the news supply, and the purpose of the selection of information about developing countries. Other questions were similar to those put in Information about developing countries (SND 0146) and World picture of opinion leaders (SND 0126); threats against the future, attitudes to different kinds of help to developing countries, and reason for not being concerned with developing countries.
