The real news is that newspaper declines should slow in Q4.
Ok, so that's not as catchy a headline.
And that's not as if the analyst is predicting an immediate recovery.
But slowing declines is good news.
You'd think the Times would want to publish a headline that positioned the industry better than "Newspapers Have Not Hit Bottom, Analysts Say."
Perhaps that's another problem with newspapers: they focus too much on the negative.
