Road to Depression

FPSA newspapers see more bad news as jobs decline!

on . Posted in Road to Depression

NEW YORK (PNN) - July 29, 2015 - It's another bad-news story for the Fascist Police States of Amerika newspaper industry: newsroom jobs slumped another 10.4% to the lowest level since tracking began in 1978.

The annual survey by the American Society of News Editors released Tuesday found newsroom employment dropped to 32,900 in 2014 from 36,700 a year earlier.

The survey highlighted the ongoing hemorrhaging at traditional news organizations as readers turn to online sources of information.

But the results also showed some gains in large-circulation newspapers and some very small ones.

ASNE found the number of employees at newspapers with daily circulations between 250,000 and 500,000 increased by 13.98%.

Those with circulations under 5,000 had a 15.9% increase in the number of employees.

But the drop was a whopping 21.58% among newspapers with circulations between 100,000 and 250,000.

Ken Doctor, a media analyst at the research firm Outsell, said the job losses were notable in a growing economy.

"If we project the recent decline forward, we'll have one-half the number of daily journalists working in 2016 or 2017 as we did 16 years ago," he said in a blog post. "This year's loss happened in the best economy in close than a decade. Daily newspapers have bled people in good times and bad."

Newspaper employment peaked in 2011 at 56,400, according to ASNE.

Doctor said there are only around 10 FPSA dailies with a circulation of about 250,000, and the data suggests they are investing for growth.

ASNE said its census showed 12.76% were minorities, down slightly from 13.34% a year earlier, and held in the range of 12%-14% over the past decade.
