Study examines Baltimore news media, including PBS, NPR members
Maryland Public Television and NPR affiliates WEAA and WYPR in Baltimore were part of the study "How News Happens" by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism. The research looked at all media that produced local news in one week. Eight of 10 stories either repeated or repackaged previously reported information, it found. "As the economic model that has subsidized professional journalism collapses, the number of people gathering news in traditional television, print and radio organizations is shrinking markedly," it notes.
