ABSTRACT
This comparative study documents how newsrooms with differentmedia systems and cultures share a common connection regardingthe content publishing systems. The authors argue that the challenges that the online journalists face with these systems inmany situations is that the systems were created not with thereader or journalist in mind, but the creator of the system. Lastly,findings are presented of how each newsroom’s CMS structureinfluences the level of presentation and its implications on thequality of journalism that is produced. The authors discuss theimplications of the findings and how alternative formats such asopen-source content management systems may provide a newlevel of journalism in this delicate relationship between contentand production. Additional areas of further investigation are alsosuggested.
