Map of Newspaper layoffs

25 Jul

This map paints a sobering picture for anyone concerned about the state of the news business.  As the layoffs pile up, the coverage of important news stories shrinks and becomes more reliant on bulk news and news wire material.  Hopefully citizen coverage and material from local people will help to compensate for the loss.  Democracy doesn’t work without access the facts so a lot is at stake here.
