>From the OSF website:
"The Mapping Digital Media research confirms that digital television
and the internet have had a radical impact on media businesses,
journalists, and citizens at large. As might be expected, platforms
distributing journalism have proliferated, media companies are revamping
their operations, and citizens have access to a cornucopia of news and
information sources. Other findings were less foreseeable: digitization
has brought no pressure to reform state broadcasters, less than
one-third of countries found that digital media have helped to expand
the social impact of investigative journalism, and digitization has not
significantly affected total news diversity. The Global Findings reveal
other common themes across the world: Governments and politicians have
too much influence over who owns, operates, and regulates the media.
Many media markets are rife with monopolistic, corrupt, or untransparent
practices. It’s not clear where many governments and other bodies get
their evidence for changes or updates to laws and policies on media and
communication. Media and journalism online offer hope of new,
independent sources of information, but are also a new battleground for
censorship and surveillance. Data about the media worldwide are still
uneven, unstandardized, and unreliable, and are often proprietary rather
than freely accessible".
