News in the net age: sources

In the course of preparing my statements for the Economist journalism debate, I reviewed a bunch of recent, useful studies and surveys. It took a while to dig these up, so I thought I’d provide a list here (in no particular order) in case anybody needs it in the future.

Federal Communications Commission, The Information Needs of Communities (2011)

Congressional Research Service, The U.S. Newspaper Industry in Transition (2010)

Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy, Informing Communities (2010) and Re-imagining Journalism (2011)

Media Standards Trust, Shrinking World: The decline of international reporting in the British press (2010)

American Journalism Review, Statehouse Exodus (2009) and Abandoned Agencies (2010) and Retreating from the World (2011)

Columbia Journalism Review, The Reconstruction of American Journalism (2009)

The Guardian, Stop Press (UK regional journalism survey) (2009)

Global Journalist, Is the Foreign News Bureau Part of the Past? (2010)

Human Rights Watch, Whose News? (2011)

Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism offers many studies, including its annual State of the News Media reports and News Leaders and the Future (2010)
