I was shocked when I received an email from a national journalism group on Tuesday afternoon. Unity Journalists of Color has released its daily job count total and since September 15th – 506 journalists across this country have lost their jobs. It’s an economic indicator of just how bad things are all over. It actually makes The Insite a bit nervous to see just how vulnerable we all are in this tough economic climate. It’s probably why I thank God everyday for my job and ability to work. Are you concerned about the future of the industry you work in? Please leave your comments below!
