Abstract:

The increasing popularity of the Internet as a source for news and information has attracted enormous scholars' attention. But the question is not yet answered adequately of whether new media are used as if they are indeed a new medium, or just a new form of information packaging. This study uses a statewide survey data of Ohio residents to look at the web sites people visit mostly frequently for news and information and to explore the relationship of Internet use and traditional media use. Results show that traditional print and broadcasting media web sites are as popular as the general and specialized information web sites. In terms of content, most of the news and information in those web sites duplicates what's already in the traditional newspapers and TV programs. In terms of structure, the web does have its advantages over traditional media. Newspaper users use general information web sites quite a lot to get supplementary information. The study suggests that what's new about new media really depends on how new media are defined.
