Newsrooms are indeed going to miss the expertise of journalists to report and publish vital news that affect Americans' lives on a daily basis. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society of News Editors (2015), there are about 32,900 full-time daily newspaper journalists at nearly 1,400 newspapers in the United States, a decrease of 3,800 jobs from 36,700 in 2013. Since 2000, layoffs and closing of newsrooms cost the newspaper industry $1.6 billion in annual reporting and editing capacity (Koehler, 2010). This deficit has caused a domino effect in the industry, including an increased workload for the "layoff survivors," declining membership in professional organizations, less autonomy for reporting, low morale, and workplace burnout (Beam, Weaver, & Brownlee, 2009; Reinardy, 2009).
