The goal of the annual State of the News Media report is to take stock of the revolution occurring in how Americans get information and provide a resource for citizens, journalists and researchers to make their own assessments.
The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism gathers in one place as much data as possible about all the major sectors of journalism, identifies trends across media, marks key findings, delves deeply into each sector and notes areas for further inquiry. We will cover some of these key findings in this Webinar.
Check out the State of the News Media 2011 Webinar replay that highlights findings from the 2011 report such as the identity of the digital news consumer, factors in the cable equation and the future for newsweekly magazines. The full 2012 report is at stateofthemedia.org.
