Media School doctoral candidate Arijit Paladhi’s paper, “Gannett and the News: Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts,” was published by the Media Inequality & Change Center at Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania this fall.
Paladhi’s paper looks at Gannett, one of the largest newspaper chains in the United States, and its presence in the journalism sphere. He examines how Gannett’s buyouts and drive for profit have impacted local news infrastructures, news quality and values, and the essence of local journalism in a democracy.
Paladhi’s studies focus on the scope, power and business of journalism. He explores the decline of grassroots journalism, how it can combat dis/misinformation, and how the idea of press freedom can evolve.
