Newspaper Slacking and Congoo

I've been asked to be an "expert commentator" on Congoo, the search engine-cum-paid content access-cum professional networking site (their quest is not for world domination, I'm assured). Today I asked for feedback on the recent Newspaper Association of America report that newspaper ad sales are down, again, as online increases, but online is still less than a 10th of print.

The feedback I got, from someone identifying himself as Mark Durbin of the NY Times:

I have worked for a print company before and let me tell you, its no fun working for a shrinking business. Most of the people on the job arent working anyway, eveyone is sending out their resumes and thinking about jumping ship. Its depressing.

And hence the downward spiral goes.
