The Publishing business as manifested in the Fourth Estate has really taken a hit from which it might not rebound. Major newspapers all over the country are in trouble and are either going out of business or cutting costs and laying off workers because circulation is way down and, as a result, so is ad revenue. Dailies have not fared so well in trying to compete with the Internet and TV as news sources. Bound and printed books may be able to survive the electronic age but those in the know say that the future for newsprint looks bleak; a sad demise for a time-honored American tradition.
