What is the future of the news? With new additions to media including blogs, online news sites, and even twitter, it is hard to say if newspapers will ultimately stay afloat. I have watched several of my friends with journalism degrees struggle to find job openings in any market. Time will tell how journalism will respond and what new ways this industry will find to create jobs for writers.
