Forbes takes a look at how Internet technologies are impacting news publishers.
"The Internet has changed the economics of the publishing industry in a way commercial television never did. The price of news and information has irrevocably been pushed way down the supply/demand curve. The Web has also destroyed the functional monopoly of the local daily newspaper with the very high barriers to technical entry. Anyone can be a publisher, and, it seems, these days, most anyone is."
The article also describes declines in readership of print products and the growing use of the Internet for news reading.
