Media in Spain
Publishing the printed newspaper in the digital age has become an act heroic bravery. It is well known - and very well reported - that circulations have fallen, some precipitously. Publishers everywhere have given up and given in to the digital urge, citing voluminous evidence that the printed page is doomed. Others march on, not so much to engage the digital wind turbines but to defy them.

Media in Germany
Scratch the surface of any particular debate about public broadcasting and a rash quickly swells up. Private sector broadcasters itch to grab listeners and viewers who would so obviously stream to their channels. Publishers see a fountain of youth, all ready to subscribe. Politicians, splinter and otherwise, are tormented by that "independent" monster waving bad news, robbing them of entitled glory or, usually, shade. It is tempting, then, for public broadcasters to break out in hives.
Fake News, Hate Speech and Propaganda
Fake news, investigators far and wide have concluded, is a big problem. Government leaders, generally, agree. Solutions they have proposed are, unfortunately, so analogue. This video game has pivoted to algorithms.
Every good idea, media included, germinates on the web. But the digital marketplace is not without pitfalls. For news and entertainment pure players - web-only media - the inevitable Darwinian shake-out is always just shout away. Oh children, woe be onto you for disappointing the investors.
