Study of online news distribution underway

“The OECD is conducting a study on the Future of News to which this discussion session contributes. Independent journalism and newspapers play an indispensable role in informing citizens. Yet currently the newsgathering and distribution
process is undergoing deep changes. In OECD countries both the number
of physical newspaper titles, their circulation and newspaper
readership are in steady decline. Newspaper bankruptcies and layoffs
have increased. At the same time, it has never been easier, quicker and
cheaper to access news. Readers now also actively participate in the
news creation, editing and dissemination process.”
