Abstract 
The general trends and developments identified in the other studies in the MUDIA
project will be checked against the state of play in a certain number of concrete
media organisations in different European countries. 
The case studies will be spread over traditional mass media, new start up media
companies and also include non sector information initiatives. The selected
organisations will be described, compared, and also analysed against the findings of
other WP tasks and the outcomes of the other studies.
The five case studies selected for examination are:
