Abstract

The article offers new insights by mapping the use and users of today’s news media landscape, as the everyday consumption of news across the range of available news media and formats is shifting as a result of transformations of media technologies, cultures and lifestyles. Theoretically the study is anchored in Habermas’s notion of the public sphere, and its recent reconceptualizations in theories of ‘cultural citizenship’, 'civic agency' and 'public connection' (Dahlgren 2006; Couldry, Livingstone & Markham 2007). The project operationalizes these theories through the concept of users' perceived worthwhileness of news media, a concept which incorporates the different functionalities of the cross-media consumption of news by citizen/consumers in everyday life. Empirically the paper presents the findings of a large-scale online survey (October 2008) that maps aspects of the citizen-consumers’ navigation in the contemporary Danish news media landscape, as a consequence of accelerating divisions between 'overview' and 'depth' news media (across print, broadcasting and the internet). The article also reports on specific findings about the use of free dailies, the credibility of various news sources, and the interactivity of news publics.
