Abstract and Keywords

This chapter covers the stability and change in patterns of news production and consumption with the advent of online news, and explores online news production and consumption. It also deals with the limitations in the research about Internet journalists and audiences. Historical conditions and market forces have affected the development of online journalism. As journalists and audiences have acted out their roles in the networked environment, they have straddled between tradition and innovation. The dearth of ethnographic research on online media audiences may be connected to insufficiently conclusive findings on the changing status of journalism as a profession and on the experiences of users as content producers. In general, the limitations presented arise from long-dated conceptual and methodological settings in the study of news production and consumption.

Keywords: news production, news consumption, online news, Internet journalists, online media audiences, market forces, online journalism
