    • Boumans, J. (18-06-2016). While the relation between PR-material and newspaper content has generated considerable attention, longitudinal evidence to substantiate claims of increasing journalistic reliance on subsidized content from the PR-industry is scarce. Applying an automated approach, this study assesses the impact of 4,455 organizational press releases on news content over a period of ten years. Finding no support for the claim of widespread copy/paste, or ‘churnalism’, practices, this study advocates a more nuanced view of news media’s reliance on press releases. [Print] de Volkskrant.
