Improved Journalistic Efficiency a Factor in Newsroom Cutbacks

Columbia University professor Michael Schudson, speaking at the USC Annenberg School for Journalism and Communication:

Online searching is more efficient than the newsroom hunt and peck; more information and databases are available online; more and more and more information proves to be just a few clicks away. If there had been no recession and if there had been no Craigslist, newspapers would still have cut hundreds and likely thousands of jobs because they could have put only the same quality product with fewer people in the newsroom.
