The truth you won't hear from the media

Decline of Newspaper Publishing Industry

Postby OldFud » Sat Dec 29, 2018 12:08 pm

Newspaper publishing is listed as one of the declining industries:

8. Newspaper publishers
> Employment change 2008-17: -50.3%
> Employment total: 160,739
> Wage growth 2008-17: -17.8%
> Avg. annual wage: $32,765

Newspaper publishing is one of only eight U.S. industries that employs less than half as many workers as it did in 2008. There are now just 160,739 newspaper publishers workers in the United States, compared to more than 320,000 a decade earlier. While people still read newspapers, many who do subscribe to the digital version, reducing the need for those who print physical copies. Industry workers today are making less money than industry workers in 2008. Since that time, the industry's average annual wages dropped 17.8%, one of the larger declines of any industry.

Has anyone noticed how South Bend Tribune has shrunk, in length-width dimensions AND number of pages

Happy New Year Old Fud! I have also noticed that the SBT has been doing some investigating but not here in South Bend. They have been going after Elkhart and other municipalities, instead of exposing corruption here in South Bend. (and Notre Dame)
