What do news consumers really want?

A metaphor, or, sometimes a cat in a sea of hotdogs in space
is just a cat in a sea of hotdogs in space.
Journalists, Digital First Media peeps, anyone who wants to are going to participate in a Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we are talking about news consumers! What do users (really) want from the news organizations in their communities?
Let's take this beyond the known platitudes and get down to the real answers, using what we know users actually consume, balanced with what journalists want to produce and what market forces want. Is there a middle ground? And how can news organizations achieve these  goals and fulfill this mission with limited resources? Can it really be done?

If you want to be in the post chat archive, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
