"Neben den klassischen Medien Zeitung, TV und Radio verzeichnen auch Online-Nachrichtenportale Rückgänge bei den Nutzern. Einzige Gewinner in der Medienwelt sind derzeit Mitmach-Internet-Plattformen, Blogger sowie die Medien der ethnischen Minderheiten. "

Highlights des 2007 Reports:

-News organizations need to do more to think through the implications of this new era of shrinking ambitions.

-The evidence is mounting that the news industry must become more aggressive about developing a new economic model.

-The key question is whether the investment community sees the news business as a declining industry or an emerging one in transition.

-There are growing questions about whether the dominant ownership model of the last generation, the public corporation, is suited to the transition newsrooms must now make.

-The Argument Culture is giving way to something new, the Answer Culture.

-Blogging is on the brink of a new phase that will probably include scandal, profitability for some, and a splintering into elites and non-elites over standards and ethics.

-While journalists are becoming more serious about the Web, no clear models of how to do journalism online really exist yet, and some qualities are still only marginally explored.
