Claiming that interest in local vs. foreign news is one way of measuring orientation towards local and greater society, this paper utilizes a Norwegian survey with questions about interest in news to identify groups with different orientations. The study builds on local/cosmopolitan dichotomy, but takes this further by claiming that rather than two, there are four different ways of orienting oneself towards local and greater society on the basis of local/foreign news interest. The author suggests that a categorizing of individuals into either ‘locals’, ‘cosmopolitans’, ‘local cosmopolitans’ or the ‘disconnected’ is a more fruitful way of dealing with this matter. The results show that gender, age, education and ties to one’s domicile may help explain which type of individual constitutes each of the four categories. Comparing traditional media with the Internet, the study shows that the level of interest in news on the Internet is generally lower, but that the patterns tied to the traditional media are transferred relatively unchanged to the Internet.

countries would become reclustered when systematically compared with each other across borders. Using a qualitative approach based on Q methodology (factor analysis of small samples), identical studies were first carried out in the nine countries (e.g., see Swart et al., 2017 , which found five national news repertoires in the Netherlands, and Peruško et al., 2017 , which found six national news audience repertoires in Croatia). Across the nine countries emerged a total of 49 national news audience repertoires, which were subjected to a second-order Q methodological

sites has become increasingly common. This distribution form is not fully comparable to the previously presented news outlets, since sharing in social media includes all of them and many more, and the control of distribution is in the hands of users and algorithms. In an analysis of digital transformation in the older news audience, it is, however, interesting to see how people orient themselves to news in social media in comparison with news sites from established distributers. When analysing use of news via social network sites, it is evident that this has not yet
