Young Reporters Are Fired [Newspapers]

Are you a newspaper reporter under the age of 35? No, because if you were, you would be fired immediately.

Let's go to that nut graf from the newest encouraging newspaper industry survey!

Most of the 95 editors responding to the August survey said their newsroom staffs had shrunk by more than 10 percent during the past year. And workers between 18 and 35 years old represented the largest age group affected by the layoffs, buyouts and attrition, the survey found.

Way to build for the technological future! Anyone doubting the sunny future of the newspaper industry hates democracy.
