Warren Buffett says “it blows your mind how fast” the newspaper industry is losing ground.

Asked about his views on the struggling industry, which has seen a rising trend of diminishing revenues and distribution in recent years, the investor said he believes “the math is really tough,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
