On 26 June 2020 The Associated Press reported:
If Penelope Muse Abernathy can take any solace in her grim work of counting how many newspapers across America have closed, it's that more people are becoming aware of the problem. The North Carolina journalism professor's latest report out this week details the industry's decline from 2004 through 2019, a period that saw the loss of more than 2,000 newspapers and a 44% drop in circulation overall.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern business and education systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
The result has left many communities without a local paper, a shift she said is being recognized by a broad range of people who notice a lack of strong local news coverage contributes to societal divisions and an erosion of trust in institutions.
- 198 of the more than 3,000 counties in the United States -- 108 of them in the South -- have no newspaper.
- The 71,640 reporters and editors working at newspapers in 2008 were cut by more than half in 10 years. The bulk of those cuts came in larger regional newspapers, some now called 'ghosts' because of their diminished presence.
