NAA releases first-ever comprehensive profile of industry revenue
From April 10: In total, the U.S. newspaper media industry took in $38.6 billion in 2012, compared with $39.5 billion in revenue in 2011, according to NAA's projections. The numbers reveal that several categories of newspaper media revenue are now growing. Circulation revenue grew 5 percent in 2012, while a host of new revenue sources not tied to conventional advertising and that barely existed a few years ago grew by 8 percent. These new revenue sources, which include such items as digital consulting for local business and e-commerce transactions, now account for close to 1 in 10 dollars coming into newspaper media companies. They are significant enough in scale that NAA has begun to collect detailed data about these revenue categories and track their trajectory year to year for the first time.

AP wins copyright case against news aggregator
From March 10: A federal trial court in New York ruled that aggregator Meltwater News violated Associated Press copyrights in its online news stories. Meltwater News included excerpts of AP articles in news digests to its subscribers and refused to pay AP licensing fees. The district court held that Meltwater News did not engage in fair use of AP articles, finding that Meltwater News is a private news clipping service, not a traditional public search engine, and harmed AP by competing for customers. NAA filed an amicus brief in the case, along with The New York Times Co., Advance Publications Inc., Gannett Co. Inc., The McClatchy Co. and BurrellesLuce.

Newspapers urge FCC to lift outdated rule
The Boston Globe
From Jan. 16: "Congress gave the FCC a mandate to review media ownership rules, and update them if necessary, every four years," NAA president and CEO Caroline Little writes in a letter to The Boston Globe. "More than a year ago, the FCC released a public notice for comment that described modest changes to the cross-ownership ban and identified the urgent need for new investments in local news operations. No other medium replicates the original reporting and professional journalism produced at great expense by newspapers for the purpose of serving their local communities. This brand of vetted journalism is expensive. Newspapers are not asking the government for financial assistance. We are simply asking for regulatory relief by ending a four-decade ban that is preventing investments in local broadcast stations and newspapers at a time when community journalism needs support."

Newspapers are still the cornerstone of democracy, says NAA President & CEO Caroline Little
NAA
From Oct. 9: We’ve been calling it the end of an era for a long time now. It’s supposed to be the end of newspapers, according to naysayers who have been predicting their ultimate demise for years. But the facts prove the newspaper industry is growing and transforming rather than dying. Of course, there are always bumps in the road to innovation, but as it turns out, we’re actually in the midst of a promising and exciting time.

Commissioner calls for repeal of newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership ban
FCC
From March 6: "If you are willing to invest in a newspaper in this day and age, we should be thanking you, not standing in your way," Federal Communications Commissioner Ajit Pai said in a recent speech at The Media Institute. Pai noted that "the Internet transformation is disrupting business models all across the media market. And cross-owned television stations [with newspapers] on average provide their viewers with more news than do other stations." Arguing that it is long past time for the commission to eliminate the 1975 ban on newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership, Pai said, "If we eliminated this prohibition a decade ago, the industry's prospects might look brighter today."
