Newspapers

The situation has come to complicate the advertising crisis of the second half of 2001. It turns out that the advertising pie, according to industry jargon, does not grow indefinitely. Increased distribute media including magazines meant the disappearance of, first, the crisis in the on-line, then the nerves between the local media later and downsizing in some newspapers, finally. Paradoxically, in addition, budget cuts do not affect the managerial staff of the newspaper business. Reaching senior implies recognition and loyalty services without getting many questions about the emptiness of these. Thus, large firms are overflowing with more than 30 executives have come to count on any of them-to say goodbye without blinking while these fellows, staff without salary or contract garbage editors sometimes do not reach 400 euros per month .

So I do not understand the continued commitment of the younger generation in directing his steps towards journalism. Before this profession became fashionable with the television series Lou Grant, the Watergate, the advent of democracy, the delicious stories in the best time to Interviu and discovering all sorts of shenanigans, maybe Joseph was right Antonio Martinez Soler when he wrote that: Apor Please do not tell my mother that I am a journalist. Tell him to work as a pianist in a brothel!. Now, however, the work of journalists survivors of the transmutation of this office so manipulated the risk of becoming something else. There is therefore no reason to appeal to the compassion of readers, listeners or viewers. Do not worry about us, our business or how we exercise. Not worth it.

Why worry about us if many, though not always aware, we are already long dead? Enrique Arias Vega (Bilbao) is a Spanish journalist and economist.
