Newspaper revenues take biggest plunge on record

Ouch! Newspaper revenues take biggest plunge on record | Tech news blog – CNET

Uncle Fester points us at this grim news:

“Total print advertising revenue last year dropped 9.4 percent to $42 billion from the year before, according to the Newspaper Association of America. That’s the biggest decrease since the NAA began measuring ad expenditures in 1950.

“Total advertising revenue, including online revenue, decreased 7.9 percent in 2007 from the year before.”

I want to see the percentage state of online revenue in the newspaper industry — that last paragraph infers a decline in online revenue for newspapers, which I know is not the case in the UK at least.
