This paper focuses on the gap between trust in and use of traditional media among Austrian teenagers. In-depth interviews with eleven students between the age of 16 and 20 have shown that young people find themselves in what we call an information dilemma: They trust traditional media like newspapers, TV and radio more than they trust social networks. At the same time, however, they consume most of the news content via social networks. This conflict between trust and consumption is due to the teenagers ambivalent motives in seeking both information and entertainment. Nevertheless, the project suggests that young people are much more critical with the media than one would have thought.
