Tewksbury, David; Althaus, Scott L.
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v77 n3 p457-79 Aut 2000
Notes that relative to traditional newspapers, Internet-based papers provide fewer cues about news story importance and give readers more control over story selection. Finds that online student readers of the "New York Times" appear to have read fewer national, international, and political news stories and were less likely to recognize and recall events that occurred during the exposure period.
