The big media guns have severley taken their eyes of their print businesses of late and it is no wonder their staff are now hurting &/or leaving. Smaller niche newspapers that provide a real service to their advertisers and readers, such as WA Business News and Realestate WA, probably already run very lean and are able to better control costs. I'm sure they will fair much better over this period, as will their staff.
