Just like newspapers offering bite-size pieces of information that are easy to read and digest, resumes also need to be formatted in a way that makes it easy on the reader. If they're not, no matter how good a candidate is, the resumes will just fall to the wayside. Keep in mind that once a resume reaches the hands of an individual (or more like the computer screen these days), it's only scanned for mere seconds. Any sight of heavy blocks of text or unorganized information can take away from those important seconds that decide whether or not your resume is a keeper.
