Nanang uses the theoretical perspective of Pierre Bourdieu who has a dualistic theoretical orientation (objectivism and subjectivism). The perspective is used to describe the depth of his dissertation which leads to the conclusion that the redundancy the editorial space and business is due to the intensity of commercialization and the print-oriented media in profiting from advertising. Journalistic practices that should be independent, eventually become increasingly affected due to economic interests.
Nanang Krisdinanto said, "Although the value of the economy is diminishing, print media in the future still has a place and will not be replaced by social media, depending on its positioning and how the credible journalistic habitus is maintained. Audiences do not believe in the news in social media because of many hoaxes, so the audience turns to the print media as a reliable source of information. '' (IQ / ES / QQ)
