U.S. Newspapers Have Shed Half of Their Newsroom Employees Since 2008

Newsroom employment at U.S. newspapers continues to plummet, falling by around half since 2008, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data. But a modest increase in jobs after 2014 in other news-producing sectors–especially digital-native organizations–offset some of the losses at newspapers, helping to stabilize the overall number of U.S. newsroom employees in the last five years.

    What is pitiful and makes one wonder what is happening to the world as we know it, is that PRINT’ – “NEWSPAPERS” are factual and trustworthy, and are ACCOUNTABLE; whereas social media, internet etal can say anything, exaggerate, eliminate truths, flat out lie, do whatever they want and ‘are not held accountable.’ What is happening to people? Our society seems to think truth doesn’t matter and they can take what they want and to hell if anyone gets in their way. Every day, I see where, on our neighborhood security systems “Ring for example’ where people just break into cars and take what they find, steal autos, broke into our home, like they have a right to do so… Parents, can you hear me? You need to teach your children as they grow that there are consequences to their actions, and don’t give them hand outs, make them earn what they get – were you not taught that way? And our politicians, they have forgotten why they were put into office… they seem to be on ego trips, self serving and pathetic. God help us all. And God, please bless America.
