Kevin: This a bad news/good news analysis of the US newpaper industry. Banks and other financial firms have taken a controlling interest in dozens of newspapers including some major tltles. The bad news is that newspaper ad revenue is set to bring in $27bn this year, which is $22bn less than three years ago. Circulation is falling. The report says that banks may bring in 'new blood', although there is little detail in this story about what that might be.
