Left Wing Newspapers See Dramatic Drop in Circulation
Original post made by Hank Lawrence, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Oct 26, 2009
"The New York Times stayed in third place at 927,851, down 7.3 percent from the same period of 2008".
"Of the top 25 dailies, the San Francisco Chronicle saw the worst circulation decline, falling 25.8 percent to 251,782".
But the main stream Wall Street journal showed an increase in circulation.
"As expected, The Wall Street Journal has surpassed USA Today as the top-selling newspaper in the United States. The Journal's average Monday-Friday circulation edged up 0.6 percent to 2.02 million -- making it the only daily newspaper in the top 25 to see an increase".
The message is clear that left wing newspapers have lost their credibility and people are just not bothering to read them anymore (with the exception of the Almanac).
I wonder how "The Nation" did nationally. One thing for sure is that you can't blame Menlo Park for not supporting it.
