USC Annenberg :: (From a report to be issued early January 2012) - Jeffrey I. Cole, director of the Center for the Digital Future claims that most print newspapers will be gone in five years.
Circulation of print newspapers continues to plummet, and we believe that the only print newspapers that will survive will be at the extremes of the medium – the largest and the smallest,” said Cole. It’s likely that only four major daily newspapers will continue in print form: The New York Times, USA Today, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal. At the other extreme, local weekly newspapers may still survive.
