Economics and Management Techniques: The Real Influence of Newspaper Chains.
Soloski, John
Based on data drawn from a participant observation of a specific chain-owned newspaper, this paper examines ways in which the relationship between newspaper groups or chains and their member papers affects the newsroom and the news. Specifically, the paper reviews three aspects of chain influence: how the introduction of a chain-owned wire service encourages member newspapers to print certain news stories, how profit goals established by chains change the role of the publisher, and how the introduction of management techniques affects newsroom personnel.
