History or Communications Grad Student in Need of a Dissertation Topic?

Okay, probably not reading here.  Your consorting with me would likely doom your career.  As I read through 200+ years of tragedies, it is hard not to notice the waves of newspaper deaths.  There seems to be a swarm in the 1920s (radio replacing newspapers as news and entertainment); another swarm in the 1950s and 1960s (television did not arrive everywhere at the same time); and again in the 1970s.  Analyzing the death rates by geography and year might be quite informative.
