Nyhetsbranschen har genomgått stora förändringar under 2000-talet på grund av tillgången till uppkopplad teknologi och sociala medier. Information sprids ögonblickligen till allmänheten vilket tvingar journalisterna att anpas- sa sig till en ny online-verklighet. Det här examensarbetet fokuserar på på de teknologiska framsteg inom branschen och hur journalisterna klarar av föränd- ringen. En kvalitativ analys utförs för att förstå det nuvarande landskapet och analysera och diskutera utmaningar och möjligheter som journalister möter samt utforska metoder för att förbättra kvaliteten avseende granskning av ny- heter och effektivitet. Resultatet visar att det finns utrymme för innovationer och förbättringar inom nyhetsbranschen som kan bidra till förbättrad nyhets- kvalitet samt hjälpa journalister och nyhetsföretag att nå allmänheten i ett online ekosystem.
