Newspaper: America's Fastest Shrinking Industry

Are you working for the fastest shrinking industry in the United States? You are, if you're working for a newspaper according to this study by LinkedIn and the Council of Economic Advisors.

The fastest-growing industries include renewables (+49.2%), internet (+24.6%), online publishing (+24.3%), and e-learning (+15.9%). Fastest-shrinking industries were newspapers (-28.4%), retail (-15.5%), building materials (-14.2%), and automotive (-12.8%).

Instead of the growth in percentage terms, we also examined the volume of job gain / loss by industry, as indicated by the largest bubbles in the figure above. Our data show that even through the recession, the industries with the largest volume of employment growth (the largest circles on the figure above) were internet, hospitals & healthcare, health, wellness & fitness, oil & energy, IT and renewables. On the other side of the story, retail, construction, telecommunications, banking, and automotive had the largest volume of job losses between 2007 and 2011.

Who wants to read papers when even the ''journalism'' parts of it read like op-ed? It's the same for TV news. Who wants to listen/watch TV news that preaches at and tries to sway your opinion rather than just presenting the facts of what happened.

Papers are what you read for local news and gossip now.

It's a shame, but no one is forcing them to print what they do.
