That’s also true in the tech press, as major industry events cancel and companies such as Apple, Facebook and Uber say revenues will likely take a hit because of supply chain issues or declining consumer demand. Online publishers have indicated that COVID-19 is starting to impact ad revenues. In particular, the NY Times made a filing in which it said (via Axios) that ad revenue would be down about 10% this quarter. The company attributed that to “uncertainty and anxiety about the virus.” Analysts said they expect to see Facebook’s ad business take a hit in the near-term (it would follow Google’s could as well). Indeed, uncertainty and fear are having a real-world impact. That
