New data by Pew Research is showing that the loss of jobs in the newsroom is much higher than previously thought.
Over 50,000 journalist jobs have been lost in the US since 2003.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Placed in a new study out of Harvard University about the difficulties that non-traditional reporters and news outlets have when getting approval to cover congressional, White House, and other official events, this data claims that at least 54,200 traditional news jobs have been lost in the last decade alone-the highest calculation yet.

This devastation has been caused by a sagging a economy, the lack of classified and display advertizing and audience shifts toward digital media, according to a Pew Research report project published in the June study from Harvard's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy, which was released in March.
"Purely in terms of bodies, the growth in new digital full-time journalism jobs seems to have been compensated for only a modest percentage of the lost legacy jobs in newspaper newsrooms alone in the past decade. From 2003 to 2012, the American Society of News Editors documented a loss of 16,200 full-time newspaper newsroom jobs while Ad Age recorded a decline of 38,000 magazine jobs, which includes all jobs for the entire consumer magazine sector," said the study.
Washington news bureaus have been part of the most radical cuts, with more than half of the Washington bureaus that are operated by media outlets being cut over the last decade. The remaining usually are stuck operating with just a handful of reporters, not the dozens which they had decades ago.
National and local television and radio newsrooms have also suffered since the study began in 2003. Local TV has been hit particularly hard as companies shift towards a single reporter instead of two and three-person news teams.
