This week, newspapers and magazines across the country were again hit with massive layoffs.

The Christian Science Monitor, for instance, announced that — after a century — it would stop publishing a daily print paper.

For more on the impact of these cutbacks and how black reporters are faring, Farai Chideya speaks with Neil Henry, dean of U.C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism.

He is also the author of American Carnival: Journalism Under Siege in an Age of New Media.
