ABSTRACT
Tewksbury et al. write that newsgathering has typically been seen as a purposeful, directed activity. Downie and Schudson state that news media Web sites feature their own staff blogs and numerous opportunities for reader involvement. Pavlik reasons that every reporter should integrate the Internet and various online sources into her or his beat, developing a list of regularly checked online sources.
