AP estimates 5,900 newsroom jobs cut from US dailies in 2008

From an annual survey of its members.  This year’s tally counted 46,700 newsroom jobs, down from a 1990 peak of 56,900. And the news in 2009 has all been bad in the US, with major papers closing or declaring bankruptcy. And we still have to hear from CanWest nad the Sun chain whether they will survive, or shed jobs to pay down debt.
