The newspaper industry has been “disrupted” by the Internet. Many predict that printed newspapers, once a multi-billionaire dollar industry, will not survive another generation. Some worry that the creative destruction of the newspaper industry will produce a negative impact on journalism; others are more optimistic about the future of online journalism.

Back in 2006, the Economist magazine published a cover story called “Who Killed the Newspaper?” Since then, print newspapers have been declining rapidly as readers turn to online sources of news. More recently, the New York Times published this article in 2014: “Print is Down, and Now Out.”

For a quick statistical look at the economic state of the newspaper industry today, see “Everything you need to know about the future of newspapers is in these two charts.” See also, “Legacy Media, the lost decade in six charts.” Also see “How Newspapers are Faring Trying to Build Digital Revenue.” American newspapers are suffering the most. On that subject, see “Why U.S. Newspapers suffer more than others.”

For background reading on U.S. newspapers, see this New Yorker feature, “Out of Print: The Death and Life of the American Newspaper“. Capture d’écran 2014-10-31 à 21.59.15
