2. Get out.
Newsies are dying. Many think they can morph to the internet and get paid by readers. It won't happen. Huffpo is a decent online rag... convince them that when they can no longer write one or two paragraph "synopsis" and post a link to a real newspaper, that they will need writers that do investigative reporting (they already have plenty of OpEd bloggers / writers). Be willing to work for peanuts and then DIG a find a story, any story. Write well and hope for the best. If one of your stories catches the public's fancy, write a book and save all the money you make from it.

Good luck. We are all depending on you.
