The newspaper and public affairs: Z1-1980/1-41-7E-PDF

In general, studies in both the United States and Canada have found ownership to have less influence on content than variables such as market size, circulation, audience characteristics, and, especially in Canada, region and language. Journalists who have experienced takeovers, however, tend to perceive greater differences than quantitative studies of content can detect. The possibility remains that concentration of ownership and lack of competition have important effects which are masked by broad content categories.
