Hallin and Mancine framework在开发许多度量标准方面都是有益的，并且是构建不同媒体系统和解决每个系统中的固有漏洞的先驱项目之一。对这种媒体的普遍批评是，它没有包含更多的异质变量。它也忽略了国家的传统大小，也没有考虑到区域主义的概念。这个系统中没有考虑较新的媒体平台。它被批评过分强调政治结构，而且没有考虑到跨领域的媒体系统的混合的许多概念。尽管存在这些漏洞，但这是一个有效的工具，因为它考虑到了其他几个变量。因此，这一理论可以作为一个主要的工具和其他意识形态可以混合来解决这一理论中提出的差距。
It was proposed in this model that the convergence hypothesis would lead to better growth for the media and would improve the society. In this scenario, convergence hypothesis tries to explain about the ideal way of communication. It has been states that this can be stemmed from highly active audience participation. This refers to the motions of economization and concentration of the media system in the societies.According to this framework the convergence of the systems would essentially occur in Europe. There would be decline of the mass culture politics and there would be more Americanization of the journalism or rather the liberal model. This commercialization would become the main tangent by which there would be homogenization of the issues. Nevertheless, this convergence model will be influenced by the political systems of the individual countries. This system of convergence hypothesis is found to be a combination of “top-down” and “bottom-up” process. Consumers are the main people who decide the convergence of the media system, and they are able to address to the benefits of convergence model that would benefit all the stakeholders involved in the process.
Hallin and Mancine framework has been beneficial in developing many metrics and was one of the pioneering ventures of structuring the different media system and addressing the inherent vulnerabilities in each of these systems. The general criticism for this medium is that it had not included many more heterogeneous variables. It also neglects the traditional size of the countries and does not factor in the notions of regionalism. Newer media platforms are not factored in this system. It has been critiqued for over emphasis of the political structure and does not factor in many notions of hybridizing of the media systems across the spectrum. In spite of these vulnerabilities this is found to be an effective tool because it factors in several other variables. Hence this theory can be used as a major tool and other ideologies can be mixed to address the gaps proposed in this theory.
