A comparison of news databases’ coverage of digital-native news Journal Article uri icon



  • Digital-native news has become widely read and award-winning sources for news, and it is important to understand if news aggregator databases provide access to these emerging news outlets. This study compares four news aggregators’ coverage of popular and Pulitzer Prize finalists’ digital-native news organizations to print-native news outlets. It found only 14 out of 47 born-digital news organizations are available in the aggregators, and of those outlets, only four have a 100% date coverage.
