The print media continues its downward spiral and once again the venerable New York Times is not immune from the downfall. In an effort to put a positive spin on an extensive study of the Times’ newsroom, the paper listed a story on its website Tuesday, outlining the future newsroom. It doesn’t take a degree in journalism to read between the lines. The Times is going to layoff more people in the editorial department and will ask future journalists to multitask, i.e. report, write, shoot video, etc.
In reading the Times report, the key component of the print industry is going to be VISUAL, VISUAL, VISUAL. Read that to mean even more effort poured into its on line presence combined with plenty of video. And while the Times looks to continue to cut expenses, it will apparently spare no expense in covering its favorite target, soon-to-be President Donald Trump. The paper, err make that the media entity, plans to allocated $5 million to cover Trump.
