The aim of this paper is to explain daily production and distribution practises in online journalism by revealing the basic content supplying strategies of new-generation news portals which are named as news aggregators. For this purpose, 429 news items that are covered in a week from the most visited news aggregator websites in Turkey have been examined. News items’ production process from content producer to distributers have firstly been analysed, then the semantic and modal overlapping of the news items are examined to assess copy-paste journalism. Data obtained is analysed by content analysis. The research pins down that the news aggregators are dependent upon elite sources with a ratio of %75,5 which is a serious rate.All in all, it is possible to claim that ongoing production and distribution practises are far from the foresight that dominated the early online journalism studies which has claimed that digital world would have pluralized the production and dissemination of knowledge. Furthermore, content distributors like newspapers or television which are part of traditional media transform to content providers for news aggregators.
