Wanted. Dead or Alive. Journalists, journalism and their audiences in a changing media landscape.
Transformations in media and news organizations caused by the arrival of new technologies and commercialization of news work have changed the production as well as the consumption of news considerably. At least that is what most media scholars tend to believe. But to what extent is that belief justified? In other words, to what extent and in what ways do new media technologies live up to their expectation as game changers, for better or for worse? Or is contemporary journalism simply more or less business as usual, continuing in the same routines? Do users or consumers of news experience a change or is it business as usual for them as well? In other words: how disruptive or constructive are these new technologies for news media?
