Local News Coverage in the Digital Age: Comparing Online News with Newspapers in Two Metropolitan Markets

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A content analysis of digital and print newspapers in Seattle and Minneapolis indicates that a fundamentally different mix of top news stories is provided online than in print. Online newspapers focused on old-style news – crime, disaster and sports – while print offered more on politics, environment and education. But the digital divide all but disappeared when major news occurred. Applying news consonance as a theoretical framework, the study explores the implications for the newspaper industry and the reading public.
