More websites than ever offer news and reporting, indicating that publishers believe the net to be a lucrative field of work.

Pros
Cons
  • Propaganda-sites and fakenews-outlets, as well as plattforms such as facebook that merely recycle and present news are competition for traditional news-sites as well.

  • Resulting from the media-crisis, the general shift in paradigm and the new possiblity of appealing to a larger variety of target groups, a lot of start-ups seize the opportunities the web offers.

  • While the exact business-models as well as revenues may vary, almost every newspaper or magazine is online by now.

  • Some renowed magazines and newspapers struggle and some already went out of business.
