Abstract : The ability of US citizens to freely express their views and opinions is a gift we must never take for granted. A key means by which our government and citizens communicate is the News Media. This critical industry is now experiencing tremendous change. Technological advances have led to an explosion in communication media that now provide consumers more news options than ever before. Traditional media such as newspapers, television and radio are being forced to develop digital media in order to maintain and attract a wider customer base. Historical advertising and business models are no longer adequate, but finding a replacement has proven difficult. This critical industry will survive the challenges of today, but the future state of the industry remains uncertain.
