Fewer Journalists

The number of journalists is shrinking. An annual census of newsroom journalists in the United States, taken by the American Society of News Editors, finds many fewer journalists working at online and traditional newspapers today than a few years ago. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of journalists fell 26 percent--from the all-time high of 56,400 to just 41,600. The good news: between 2009 and 2010, the number of professional journalists grew by 100.
