Posted January 04, 2019 17:21:18The world is still reeling from a massive blackout in Brazil, and while it hasn’t impacted the world’s top newspapers, the blackout has hit the most popular ones hard.
The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are among the largest newspapers in Brazil.
The two largest newspapers, Folha de S.
Paulo and Folha do Esporte, have both gone dark, and both are facing significant financial losses.
The Wall Street Times is also suffering financially from the blackout, as it’s down around 20 percent of its advertising revenue, according to its website.
The blackout has also affected the newsprint business.
There are now fewer newspapers than there were a year ago, according, and many of those papers have shut down their print-on-demand (POD) printing plants.
Folha da Seria, the country’s oldest newspaper, is currently the only newspaper left running in the country.
The lack of a newsprint monopoly has caused a major loss in revenue, and some papers have been forced to lay off staff, which is bad for the economy.
As a result, newspapers have struggled to find enough staff to fill the void left by the blackout.
According to Folha Da Seria’s managing editor, Julio Rodrigues, it’s hard to know what the newspaper is going to be like in five or 10 years.
He explained that some of the newspapers in the city have already decided to lay people off and that some other newspapers are already in the process of laying people off.
“The newspapers are struggling to make the right decisions,” Rodrigues told Ars.
“Some of them are closing down.”
There’s also been a drop in print sales as a result of the blackout: The Folha Journalista, the paper’s flagship publication, fell as much as 10 percent from its previous year.
Rodrigues said that it’s difficult to know if the decrease is due to the blackout or because there are fewer newspapers.
The Brazilian government is investigating the blackout and is hoping to solve the problem with a special paper, which will run on POD printing.
The paper will be based on a Brazilian-made printing press, but it will still use traditional newsprint.
The newspaper will also be able to use other media outlets, like video and live feeds.
However, Rodrigues declined to say whether the government will allow any digital media outlets to operate on PEDs, and said the government hasn’t provided any details about how it will do that.
“If there are any questions that we’re not aware of, we can ask the government, but at the moment, I can’t give you any information about the answer,” he said.
“I can’t say anything because the paper is not closed.”
The blackout isn’t the only financial hit that Folha has suffered.
The newspaper also suffered a serious loss in advertising revenue: Folha reported a $4.7 million loss in its third quarter of 2018, which has seen a 13 percent drop in advertising sales compared to the same quarter a year earlier.
The company has said that the loss is due in part to the loss of POD machines, which have caused the paper to rely on traditional newsprints for the bulk of its ads.
However this is likely to be an understatement.
Rodrigue said that many of the PODs that are used in Brazil are manufactured in China, which makes up around 90 percent of the countrys print-only market.
“That is a huge part of the problem,” Rodrigue added.
“We’re not seeing the same growth of PED.”
