Walmart vs. Jewish Journalism

The Baltimore Jewish Times' Neil Rubin speaks to Luke Ford. He explains why the paper has shrunk to 100-130 pages from 160 in the old days:
Back then, there were more mom-and-pop operations. There were corner pharmacies and hardware stores. Now with Home Depot, Wallmart, those small businesses are either going out of business or do not have an advertising budget anymore. The national chains do not advertise in Jewish newspapers or any weekly newspaper.
