The early stages of the integration of the internet in EU newsrooms
The current study explores the perceived integration of the internet inside European newsrooms. We carried out a survey with 239 journalists working for 40 of the most-read outlets in 11 European countries. This study shows that journalists consider the internet a useful tool mainly for practical functions rather than to enhance the core values and functions of their profession. However news production continues to be based on direct interaction, and journalists’ professional identity is still anchored to print newspapers. Moreover, a lack of communication between publishers and newsrooms emerges. Professional and personal profiles and nationality play a relevant role in the development of attitudes toward the implementation of the internet in newsrooms.

Abstract

The current study explores the perceived integration of the internet inside European newsrooms. We carried out a survey with 239 journalists working for 40 of the most-read outlets in 11 European countries. This study shows that journalists consider the internet a useful tool mainly for practical functions rather than to enhance the core values and functions of their profession. However news production continues to be based on direct interaction, and journalists’ professional identity is still anchored to print newspapers. Moreover, a lack of communication between publishers and newsrooms emerges. Professional and personal profiles and nationality play a relevant role in the development of attitudes toward the implementation of the internet in newsrooms.
