Carina Jacobi asks what the ongoing changes in the media environment (the shift from print to online media) mean for the quality of political news, as well as for research on this topic. One question she focuses on is how we should re-conceptualise news quality in a popularising media environment. Her research includes an empirical study comparing the quality of political news produced by media outlets during the 2013 Austrian national election campaign.
