Advertiser Pressure on Newspaper Journalists: A Survey
We conduct a survey among Belgian newspaper journalists to check whether advertisers are putting pressure to steer newspaper content, either directly or indirectly and whether they succeed in doing so. The results indicate that 35 per cent of Belgian journalists are experiencing some pressure of advertisers. However, journalists can to a large extent withstand this pressure, especially if coming directly from advertisers.
