Newspaper jobs

By Chris Daly 

This just in: The number of jobs for reporters in U.S. newspapers has probably bottomed out. That’s one takeaway from the latest survey of the country’s newsrooms released by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. The ASNE, which has been meeting in Washington and played host to both Obama and Romney (on different days!), conducts an annual survey of who is working in the newsroom.

Here’s a key passage (imho):

Despite this year’s loss in newsroom positions, the decline in jobs that began in 2006-07 appears to be stabilizing. The loss this year is not as drastic as the losses between 2007 and 2010.

So, if things are no longer getting worse, does that mean that they are getting better?
