ABSTRACT
The article reports that media magnate Rupert Murdoch said that competition from the Internet needs to be tackled by newspapers. He quoted a report that said 44% of people between 18 and 34 say they use websites at least once a day for news. He added that print media should overhaul news gathering and delivery to ensure it collects the readers and advertisement revenue moving to the web. There is a fear within the industry that newspapers have not found a place in which to sit with the Internet. Newspaper Trinity Mirror revealed in its latest financial results that a central plank of its strategy was the development of digital media.
