- France-Soir, death of a newspaper:
"Its glory days were in the 1950s and 1960s, when it sold over 1 million copies per day. The paper's finest hour came in November 1970, when it sold 2 million copies.
Its circulation had been declining for years. According to AFP, recent circulation was only a disappointing 30,000 copies per day" (France24.com), leading to "89 job losses" (Independent).
- Adapt to survive, a photographer's view of the market today:
"We are in a period of transition. Although too much web content generates no income for its creators, new revenue streams are gradually establishing themselves. Some sites already bring in real money from advertising, or paywall subscriptions. News websites are beginning to commission or buy in photo stories in the form of multimedia pieces (still images and sound), or web documentaries (video, stills and sound, sometimes with interactive features)."
