The Decline of the Media Industry Infographic uses facts to show that the current way news and media deliver information is becoming obsolete.

According to the graph, advertising revenues have dropped from $49 billion all the way down to $27 billion just over the span of five years. Journalism jobs continue to decline and big name companies, such as Borders, have gone out of business. But it's not just the printed word that is dying. The video industry continues to decline as piracy rises. Netflix predicts that no one will use DVDs by 2030, which can already be seen with the fall of Blockbuster.

The Decline of the Media Industry Infographic can be looked at one of two ways: as a downfall that is unstoppable or as an opportunity to innovate and create new ways to deliver media.
