Newspapers are really suffering

has a fascinating chart showing the dramatic drop of newspaper revenue over the last five years.  From 1950 to 2000 revenue from advertising grew steadily from $20 billion to $60 billion.  This growth all evaporated in the last five years as revenue dropped back down to $20 billion. 

I can remember delivering the local paper in the 1970s.  Today's Sunday edition is often smaller than the dailys I used to drop at people's door steps.
