First, the number of people going online for news accelerated substantially in 2008. But although many of these visited traditional news destinations, “the financial impact of that was a negative one”.

Second, the collapsing economy has hit the news industry hard: “the recession hammered advertising and diverted attention away from innovating new revenue sources”.

So why are tattoos erased, pictures combined, and colors skewed? Although some might say that photoshop is to blame, I would have to disagree. Yes, photoshop is extremely powerful in it’s editing capabilities, but isn’t Final Cut Pro and Pro Tools just as good?
