Data and analysis from a 2008 study that captures the newspaper industry "in the grips of two powerful, but contradictory, forces. On one hand, financial pressures sap its strength and threaten its very survival. On the other, the rise of the web boosts its competitiveness." Topics addressed include staff cutbacks, changing content, influence of the Internet, and implications for the future. From the Pew Research Center Project for Excellence in Journalism.
