From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Current state of the news, paragraph 8 states "Staff downsizing has caused significant losses of news coverage. For example, coverage of state houses and state perspectives on news from Washington, D.C. has declined, as has coverage of local government issues, foreign affairs, and specialty beats such as science and the arts." Cite evidence of this statement. Demonstrate that this statement is justified from an absolute perspective, not just from a print newspaper perspective. Demonstrate that the difference in coverage is not merely a migration to alternative media.
