Another Round Of Layoffs Hit Nation's Print Media

This week, newspapers and magazines across the country were again hit with massive layoffs.

The Christian Science Monitor, for instance, announced that — after a century — it would stop publishing a daily print paper.

He is also the author of American Carnival: Journalism Under Siege in an Age of New Media.
