30% of paid journalists lost their jobs between 2006-2012

From Allgov:

The carnage of layoffs resulting from the Internet age has been quite gruesome for journalism employment, with the U.S. having lost 30% of its paid media workers.

According to the Pew Research Journalism Project, print publications facing dwindling subscription rates laid off 17,000 reporters and editors from 2006 to 2012.

The reduction saw the total number of journalists go from 55,000 to 38,000 during that span.

Thirty percent in any industry would be alarming.
