Fit to Print: Covering The Decline Of The Newspaper Industry

Our colleagues at sister publication FishbowlLA pointed us to this trailer from a work-in-progress documentary about the newspaper industry, Fit to Print.

The 10-minute trailer features interviews with Columbia University’s Andie Turcher, The New York TimesTim Arango and Jason Fry, formerly of The Wall Street Journal and includes scary factoids like, “Newspaper jobs will decline by 25 percent by 2018,” and “In 2009 alone, over 15,000 people lost their job in the newspaper industry.”

The documentary is being produced by a group of journalists and a videographer, including Adam Chadwick, a former copy editor at The New York Times who saw his job “evaporate” at the end of last year.
