Gutting the Local Paper
Dean Singleton, Tom Honig, and the Santa Cruz Sentinel
Newspapers across the country are in decline. Reporters are being sacked, buildings sold, and operations consolidated. Itâs all the fault of the Internet. Print journalism â financed by ad revenue and classifieds â canât compete with free websites like Craigslist and have seen a huge decline in their profits. Publishers are being forced to make âvery difficultâ decisions, firing significant numbers of staff in order to make ends meet. It was inevitable that this crisis would reach Santa Cruz, and the layoffs at the Sentinel are just part of this general decline. At least, thatâs what corporate media executives want you to think.
