NO THANKS: Nearly one-third of consumers surveyed by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism said they have abandoned a news outlet because it no longer gave them what they had counted on, either with fewer or less complete stories.

TV DECLINE: Last year, 28 percent of adults under age 30 counted themselves as regular local news viewers, down from 42 percent in 2006.

JOBS LOST: Newsroom employment at newspapers is down 30 percent since a peak in 2000 and has gone below 40,000 people for the first time since 1978.
