Market‐based and press‐freedom variables were tested as predictors of “interactive” online journalism at the Web companions of 17 English‐language Asian newspapers. A multidimensional conception of interactivity was used in the analysis. The findings suggest that market‐based variables predict only certain facets of an online newspaper’s interactivity. Press‐freedom variables were not fruitful predictors.
