Has media consolidation impacted local journalism?

Orangeville, ON (James Doan) Has local news coverage in our community decreased?

Do you feel that news content has given way to opinion pieces and biased coverage?

Even if newspapers like the Banner and Citizen cover less, do you think the rise of smaller niche publications and blogs give us more total news overall?

Or would you say that overall there has not been a change in news content?

  1. It does still matter when and how reliably you get your information. Local sources are either in financial trouble or are actually diminishing quickly.

    Local papers have suffered sharper declines in circulation than national outlets and greater incursions into their online advertising businesses from tech giants such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. The data also shows that they are having a much more tough time converting readers into paying digital customers.
