Newspapers Continue Their Decline

Newspapers Continue Their Decline

There are many interesting facts provided by Pew Research Center in their “State of the News Media” report. Today, we look at their “Newspaper Fact Sheet”. It clearly provides evidence for the continuing, sad, rapid decline of daily newspapers’ print circulation. As best it can be calculated, digital circulation remains steady and is becoming a rapidly growing percentage of overall revenues. The shrinking newspaper industry’s newsrooms are also continuing to shrink. The little good news may be that certain publications like the New York Times are beginning to see large digital gains, though this presently appears to be an aberration.
