Welcome to the website for The Future of Media and the Information
Needs of Communities in a Digital Age. The media landscape is changing
rapidly. On the one hand, there are many innovative new sources for
news and information. On the other hand, citizens may find significant
gaps, including in the availability of some kinds of local news and
information. This could have dire consequences for democracy and the
health of communities, hindering citizens’ ability to hold their
leaders and institutions accountable.
This Future of Media project will review the state of the traditional
sources of news and journalism, and new models for providing
information to consumers and communities (e.g., information about
disaster procedures, schools, crime, and public health matters, etc).
The goal: to help ensure that all Americans have access to vibrant,
diverse sources of news and information that will enable them to
enrich their families, communities and democracy.
Tell us about your community and its media. Do you have a newspaper?
Local TV news stations? Great websites? Anything else? What works
well? What works poorly? How have things changed over time? What
information do you wish you could get but can't?
* Share stories about media in your community
* What government policies could improve the news and information media?
* How should media companies change their approaches to delivering news and
