I'm looking for studies or references to the structure of news discourse in online newspapers - and in particular any comparisons with the offline hard copy of those publications. Essential question is: has the Internet altered the way news articles are discursively constructed? My observations so far indicate that news websites merely act as a vehicle for the dissemination of a hard copy story and there is, in fact, no alteration to the actual story. Rather it is the presentation of the article, eg headline, partial sentence, perhaps photograph and then a link to the full story that is altered. I'd be interested in any other comments or observations by other AOIR listers.
