Safe Mode: On
Steep Circulation Losses (for liberal print media)

The Audit Bureau of Circulations released this morning the spring figures for the six months ending March 31, 2009, showing that the largest metros continue to shed daily and Sunday circulation -- now at a record rate.

According to ABC, for 395 newspapers reporting this spring, daily circulation fell 7% to 34,439,713 copies, compared with the same March period in 2008. On Sunday, for 557 newspapers, circulation was down 5.3% to 42,082,707. These averages do not include 84 newspapers with circulations below 50,000 due to a change in publishing frequency.

The percent comparisons are for the same period ending in March 2008. (All daily averages are for Monday through Friday.)

Daily circulation at The New York Times dropped 3.5% to 1,039,031. The Times' Sunday circ was down 1.7% to 1,451,233.

The Washington Post lost 1.6% of its daily circ to 665,383 and 2.3% to 868,965.

  • I think this has more to do with the economy than anything else. If you look at sales across the board, everything is down. I mean Do libs own car companies? No, yet their sales are down too.

  • Newspaper sales worldwide are falling. (4.7% per annum in the UK for example.)

    Are non-liberal newspaper sales stable? Or in decline?

    Unsurprisingly, these facts are not made clear here.

    • In retrospect, I don't think I made my point clearly enough.

      This is a deceptive post with evidence filtered to reach the desired conclusion in a way that Stalin would be utterly proud.

      ALL newspapers, with, given recent events, the understandable exception of the WSJ are in terminal decline.

      You are, as you read this reply, looking at the principal reason for this decline - the internet.

    • To call independently collated information by Editor & Publisher something that would make Stalin proud is overreaching, and really tells me that you don't care about facts, but merely your world view. Note that I did not redact any of the original reports, but merely highlighted an interesting detail in the data they published.

      Just as an exercise, can you point out in this list compiled by E&P any publication other than the WSJ that did _not_ take a very liberal stance in the 2008 ele More..
