  • Media Policy for an Informed Citizenry: Revisiting the Information Needs
           of Communities for Democracy in Crisis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nikki Usher, Joshua P. Darr, Philip M. Napoli, Michael L. Miller
      Pages: 8 - 20
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 8-20, May 2023.
      This volume of The ANNALS revisits and updates a call made by scholars in the early 2010s for public policy to respond to the market failure of local news. Organized into four parts—policy, supply, demand, and adaptation—this volume is committed to the proposition that people need information about their communities in order to navigate everyday life, and that those information needs are inextricably intertwined with other basic necessities like sustenance, transportation, housing, health, and safety. However, local and regional newspapers face an existential threat to their continued economic survival that undermines their ability to do even basic, routine coverage of civic institutions and communities. This volume demonstrates that professional journalism is one of many ways to support communities’ information needs. We consider how new sources of news and information might fill contemporary information needs and how media policy, broadly understood, could help create a more equitable, tolerant, and just multiracial democracy.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 21-28, May 2023.
      This article provides a firsthand account of research conducted for the Federal Communications Commission in connection with its inquiry into communities’ critical information needs and how well they were being met by local news and information sources. I detail the industry and political pressures brought to bear in opposition to that inquiry and the extent to which opposition to this kind of research undermines the development of prosocial local information ecologies. Finally, I discuss what can be done to develop research in this vein and shore up local information needs.

  • What Is Media Policy'

      Pages: 29 - 45
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 29-45, May 2023.
      This article offers a definition of media policy and, through a discussion of specific areas of public policy, describes the scope of media policy as an area of potential government intervention. I argue for a more expansive conceptualization of media policy than has typically guided the work of 21st-century media policymakers. I also argue that there has been a troubling tendency to apply a technology policy framework to contexts that would be better served by a media policy analytical framework. The result has been a neglect of core media policy principles that are focused on cultivating an informed citizenry and ensuring that communities’ information needs are being met.

  • An Overview of State and Local Legislation to Support Local News: Policy
           Mechanisms and Challenges to Impact

      Authors: Jessica Mahone
      Pages: 46 - 61
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 46-61, May 2023.
      Since 2017, in response to catastrophic declines in the commercial model that has traditionally undergirded U.S. journalism, lawmakers in 10 states have introduced legislation specifically designed to provide support to local news media. This analysis identifies four mechanisms in the legislation: tax incentives, establishment of a task force or commission, appropriation of general funding, and mandated advertising expenditures. Through late 2022, five of 24 bills introduced have been enacted in four states, a rate about the same as for state legislation enactment overall. I discuss several challenges attendant to the enactment of legislation aimed at supporting local news: (1) partisan divides, (2) budgetary restrictions, (3) narrow definitions of local news media, and (4) exacerbation of the deterioration of the economic conditions faced by news media by legislation that guts public notice laws. I also discuss the mandating of advertising expenditures enacted in New York and Chicago.

  • A Lost Decade: Policymakers Fiddled as Newsrooms Burned

      Pages: 62 - 72
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 62-72, May 2023.
      Journalists can be averse to media policy, but the stakes today are too high for practitioners to sit these debates out. The years that followed the 2011 Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Report were a lost decade in media policy, in which policymakers dithered as an information apocalypse loomed. It is essential to acknowledge that the media ecosystem has always been affected by public policy and to broaden our vision of how policymakers can help local news survive and innovate. I argue for urgent, renewed investments from government, philanthropy, and consumers to create a new media ecosystem in which all kinds of news media—public, nonprofit, and commercial—can be revived and can thrive.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 74-89, May 2023.
      In recent years, local media in the U.S. have faced increasing economic precarity, and many newspapers have been purchased by hedge funds and private equity firms. How do investment owners shape the newspapers they acquire' We document the shift in ownership and its impact on the number and type of journalists that local newsrooms employ. Using over 13,000 digitized media directory pages, we measure the newsrooms of 211 major newspapers from 2005 to 2022. We estimate that the acquisition of a newspaper by an investment owner reduced the paper’s newsroom by nine reporters and editors compared to newspapers that remained under other ownership, a cut equivalent to 14 percent of the average newspaper’s staff. These cuts were concentrated among positions focused on general assignment and political reporting. Our findings indicate the rise of investment owners has accelerated the decline of local newspapers.

  • Delegitimizing Rural Public Health Departments: How Decaying Local News

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 90-108, May 2023.
      This article considers the public communication challenges that health officials in rural America faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. I analyze the role that public health officials played in communicating news and information about the pandemic in 29 rural counties in Illinois. These officials were challenged by a diminished reporting capacity among local media outlets, and by a political radicalization of local Republicans, who no longer regarded local media as trusted nodes in local storytelling networks. I find that while public health officials can help fill a community’s critical information needs about risk and emergency, the public’s take-up of this information depends on sociocultural and political forces that shape the broader communication context.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 109-124, May 2023.
      The ongoing decline of local news not only deprives communities of important information, but also provides an opening for misinformation through so-called pink slime journalism: local media that poses as a news outlet and exploits the low cost of automating content to deceive readers. Is there an advantage to posing as a newspaper online' In this study, I use a survey experiment to assess how readers respond to the same headline delivered to them as a fake newspaper, a fake website, or a real television station. Respondents rated the fake local newspaper as less credible than a real television station or a fake local website, but they rated fake local websites as credibly as real local television. Readers’ preference for following local or national news and the timing of assessment moderate these effects.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 125-141, May 2023.
      The media landscape is more expansive than ever and offers increasingly fast and cheap ways to consume information. However, many racially and economically marginalized communities live in information environments that fail to provide in-depth coverage of critical topics, such as day-to-day finance. I offer an overview of financial access and news deficits to argue that financial institutions and news providers have historically underserved racially and economically marginalized communities, contributing to information gaps in financial news and the need for alternate sources of information. I investigate how the placement of brick-and-mortar fringe economy financial providers, such as payday lenders, affects how people learn about and make sense of their financial options. I show that these sorts of concrete neighborhood characteristics influence how people participate in today’s economy and share information. Because economic participation is an essential element of citizenship, I propose that these kinds of disparities in neighborhood characteristics and financial access should influence the ways in which we conceive of and deliver information to marginalized groups.

      The decline in the number and quality of local news media has led to digital platforms becoming more central in circulating local information, affecting what information and issues are accessible to community residents. We demonstrate this by focusing on health disparities related to COVID-19, examining how both news and non-news civic organizations in six Great Lakes communities addressed pandemic-related racial inequities. Our analysis of interviews and a corpus of Facebook posts suggest that (1) very little discussion of health disparities emerged on Facebook from organizations in these communities, and (2) the majority of this content was produced by local news outlets. This article offers a vision of what local content might look like in the absence of robust local news outlets and highlights potential consequences of local civic information infrastructure with digital platforms playing a central role.

      What types of sources did people seek out for local information about COVID-19' In this study, we explore the information-seeking repertoires that Illinois residents had for obtaining information about the spread of COVID-19 within their local communities. We use data from a statewide survey of adults living in Illinois to identify five distinct repertoires that differ in terms of the range of sources consulted and the level of information sought. We then examine how differences in information-seeking repertoires relate to sociodemographics, the type of geographic community respondents live in, and their level of concern about COVID-19. Our results show similarity and divergence in the ways people sought out information about COVID-19 in their local communities, with local news playing a key role in all information-seeking repertoires.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 189-207, May 2023.
      News outlets are increasingly nationalizing their presentation of news stories, framing and presenting local news in a broad national context. We investigate how supply-side and curation-side factors of the news cycle contribute to the nationalization of news coverage. Through the computational analysis of 1.05 million Google news results on four days in July–August 2020, that corresponded to 1,581 news stories published on the George Floyd protests in Portland, Oregon, and Kenosha, Wisconsin, we examine the relationship between the nationalization of news coverage, stories’ search rank in Google News, and the geographic distance between the news event and the stories’ reading audience. Further, we explore the role of Google News in curating locally focused news. Our findings help to map the media ecosystem in a digital age, highlighting the influence of algorithmic power in politics and showing that excessive circulation of national news may have a profound negative impact on news diversity and social justice.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 208-227, May 2023.
      This article addresses current debates about the future of journalism by arguing that efforts to “save” local journalism will not succeed unless they reckon with the historical role that journalism has played in undermining democracy for Black people and Black communities. The authors are cofounders of a project that calls for media reparations to reconcile and repair the history of anti-Black racism in the U.S. media system. We describe the media industry’s history of racist harms, the structural racism that enabled those harms, and the role that government policy can play in creating a media ecosystem where Black media outlets and voices control the creation and distribution of their own narratives. We then discuss prospects for a reparative approach to the reform of media practice and media policy that focuses on acknowledging and reconciling the media system’s racial harms.

      This article underscores the importance of local investigative journalism and routine coverage for American democracy while acknowledging its current unsustainable financial model. Working from my experience as a newspaper editor and media columnist/public editor, I offer suggestions to improve the quality and content of local news. My suggestions include national legislation to support the sustainability of journalism, media literacy education for adults and youth, and subsidies to newsrooms via state universities.

      Traditional and legacy Spanish-language news outlets are shrinking, leaving many communities in the U.S. without news that satisfies their critical information needs. At the same time, news media entrepreneurs are adopting and adapting to technological changes that offer new venues for news delivery. We use a mixed-methods research approach to analyze Latinx digital-native news media organizations that distribute news in Spanish via mobile instant messaging (MIM) apps. Results show that journalists took a bottom-up approach to meeting the information needs of their audiences, choosing MIMs because their readers were already established on those platforms. Our work also reveals that news delivered via MIMs focuses mostly on health, emergencies and public safety, civic information, and economic development.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 256-265, May 2023.
      Public health communication related to COVID-19 does not typically address the needs of “high-risk” Americans. Rather, pandemic-era policy has prioritized those who have the lowest risks for complications and mortality—white, nondisabled, employed, housed, middle- to high-income American citizens with private health insurance. This article addresses whether commonly held definitions of misinformation and “health literacy” are useful when public health communication does not meaningfully address the needs of chronically ill and disabled individuals. It considers strategies used by marginalized people to assess and understand medical advice, workplace provisions, and education policies that typically assume low risk and ignore comorbidities. It argues that the U.S. should build a more equitable public health communication infrastructure that collects and reports on race- and disability-specific data, accounts for complexity in crisis communication, and targets the needs of communities that are most heavily impacted by public health threats.

      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 707, Issue 1, Page 266-276, May 2023.
      Many ideas have been proposed for improving the economics of producing journalism, but this article explores a few new ones focused on local journalism. These ideas include an increased reliance upon retired journalists, more collaboration with academic researchers, providing reports to aid those looking to move to a new community, and an outline for allowing news organizations to gain a legal right to a much larger portion of the financial benefits associated with prosocial investigative journalism.
