On the other hand there is also a positive relationship between the different content of the press and the extent of the trust at family, friends and organizational levels but between the trust on different topics of the press (social, political, cultural and economic) and the social trust there was no relationship at the organizational level.In short, it can be concluded that the press can play a major role in promoting or diminishing the social trust and consequently the social capital in the society.
