The NYT reports that the print circulation of US newspapers dropped by another 7 per cent:
Of the top 25 newspapers in the United States, all posted declines in circulation except for The Wall Street Journal, which eked out a 0.6 percent gain, according to the figures released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. For the others, the declines ranged from 20.6 percent for The New York Post, to a slight 0.4 percent drop for The Chicago Sun-Times.
There’s all kinds of things not to like about newspapers (the New York Post, for instance, is a nasty little rag). But given that no-one’s yet come up with a very attractive (or even viable) alternative, the decline of print is kinda depressing.
