Dear Brad

http://www.zeepedia.com/read.php?types_of_print_media_newspapers_magazines_books

Do you feel with the advancement of electronic media technology, the print media (publishing) business has been affected ?.

Television News, Web Sites, E-Books are preferred over print media viz newspapers, magazines, books by consumers ?.

If a survey or poll is carried what could be your opinion regarding the same ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
The answer is quite obvious.  In the developed world, print media are shrinking their businesses.  Sun Media in Canada just announced another layoff and the closing of ELEVEN more print newspapers.  

They are responding as best as they can by creating online news sites that are behind a "pay wall" but the revenues from online advertising are much lower than for print, and they're all struggling.
