Global News Media
Fundamental changes in the media landscape have given rise to policy debates across the
world. As news media revenues have fallen, for example, societies are working to understand
what changes are needed to maximise the objectives of the news media industry: to support
public accountability, enhance an informed citizenry and facilitate national discourse.
Accenture was commissioned by Google to analyse changes in news media revenues over time
in order to understand the scale of disruption to news media revenues, and the drivers of that
change. We completed that analysis across 10 countries. The reports have been developed
using a combination of public and proprietary data on newspaper revenues – compiled from
global market studies as well as country-speciﬁc data agencies.
