Do you have video or photos that you want to share with Delaware Newsline? It’s easy! | Most of the news and information you see on the TV news or in the daily newspaper was generated by people just like you. They send information to the media, usually via press releases and personal contact. And good news tips from people in the community shows up on TV, newspapers, and at online News media in the same way.

Traditional models of support for journalism are in decline. As a result, voices are going unheard and issues going under-reported as traditional media struggles to survive.

There is little doubt that the American news industry is fighting to maintain its once profitable business models. Newsroom layoffs have become common and some of the nation’s historic news organizations have closed altogether. Business Insider reported in July 2009 that, in just the first six months of that year, 105 newspapers were shuttered and 10,000 newspaper jobs were lost.

A root of these problems is the struggle of many news organizations to generate adequate revenue, a fact that should hardly be surprising to avid watchers of the news industry. In the context of newspapers, advertising revenue — the source of income that newspapers and digital news organizations historically relied upon to fund most of their news gathering activities — is down more than 40 percent from a decade ago. Income from newspaper circulation and digital subscribers— traditionally a lesser source of funding — has likewise waned.

This economic situation means that even as journalism remains as important as ever to local communities, it is becoming harder to sustain a viable news enterprise. Thus, in light of the current economic climate, some have encouraged news organizations to embrace the nonprofit business form, which if usually used for religious, charitable or educational endeavors. Some known digital Citizen Journalism websites are accepting non-tax-deductible donations in order to stay afloat.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorship’s from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.
