Newspaper industry's 3Q ad revenue slipped 5 pct (Dinosaur Media DeathWatch™)
Yahoo News ^ | December 2, 2010 | Staff

Advertising revenue at U.S. newspapers has continued to slip in the third quarter.

New figures from the Newspaper Association of America show that in the July-to-September period, the industry's total print and online ad revenue fell 5.4 percent to $6.1 billion from $6.4 billion last year.

Publishers across the country have seen ad revenue plunge over the past few years, hurt by the recession and by rising competition on the Web. The latest figures mark 15 consecutive quarters — close to four years — of steady declines.

What? ... !!!

Slipped from an already abysmally low base so bad that hundreds of newsrags have been hurled into bankruptcy?

With the most expensive election in history reaching its pulp pounding peak at that very moment?

With billions of bucks spent buying boneheads' votes?


Does this bode badly for the above booby and his batty buddies?

Does this maelstrom and mauling mean the mashing and murder of the main stream media?

What nefarious nasties are next for the nutty nincompoop newsers?

Tune in tomorrow ... same bat time ... same bat forum.

This is off topic but might be of interest...... they’re hiring at Forbes. This is the boss soliciting writers

Perhaps they might like a Dinosaur Media Deathwatch reporter. We have a good one here and would share with Forbes.

A Brief Word
You Told Us
Lewis D’vorkin, 12.02.10, 07:30 AM EST
Forbes Magazine dated December 20, 2010

Ever since my early days in journalism (a long time ago), I’ve believed the audience could add valuable information and context to a story. Back then there really wasn’t a way for them to do it. Nor did most journalists want them to.

That’s all changing with the Web’s participatory ethos. Among traditional media brands, FORBES is moving ahead by opening up its digital and print platforms so that knowledgeable outside contributors, news consumers and marketers, too, can fully participate in the content-creation process, with all voices clearly identified and labeled. As we say, we’re putting journalism at the center of social media.

With this issue, to use Web jargon, we wanted to crowdsource the most important names, places, companies and things that everyone needs to know about in 2011.

In effect, we triple-crowdsourced the concept. First we asked our staffers what they thought. Then we asked our nearly 300 topic-specific outside contributors. In early November both groups posted their selections on Forbes.com so that audience members could comment, make their own suggestions and share it all on their social media streams.

This issue brings that digital crowdsourcing to our magazine in what could be a first-of-its-kind way.

A big thanks to FORBES editors Michael Noer and Michael Ozanian for spearheading the first of many projects like it to come.

So, who is the most important name to know about next year?

We believe it could very well be Julian Assange, the mastermind behind WikiLeaks. FORBES staff writer Andy Greenberg journeyed from New York to Washington to Iceland and then to London for a clandestine meeting with Assange himself.

You can read Andy’s compelling story and then check out the Need to Know list. We then hope you’ll join us at Forbes.com/need-to-know to continue the conversation.
