Nationalizing News Environment: Causes and Consequences

October 6, 2022 @ 3:30 am - 5:00 pm


Declining local news is well documented, and evidence continues to suggest a related trend: the nationalizing news environment.

This conversation interrogates what we know about both the causes and consequences of a nationalizing news environment and outlines an agenda for future research.
