Offline and Online News Content

(p.41) Chapter 3 Offline and Online News Content
News on the Internet

David Tewksbury

Jason Rittenberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on how online news is generated and presented. It compares the content of online news with that created for the offline media (for example, newspapers, radio and television), and whether the distinction between offline and online news remains a meaningful one. It also examines the extent with which news appearing on the Internet reflects traditional notions of the importance of issues and events, along with the novel ways that online news content can be disseminated to the audience. The role of citizen journalism such as blogs and news feeds in the news environment is considered. The chapter concludes by discussing how the creation and presentation of news online can affect the way citizens understand events, issues, and public policy.

Keywords:   online news, offline media, Internet, audience, public policy, newspapers, television, radio, blogs, citizen journalism
