U.S. Newspaper Circulation Falls 8.7%

Yikes. The AP, citing statistics from the Audit Bureau of Circulations, reports that U.S. newspaper circulation fell 8.7% in the last six months. Sunday paper circulation fell 6.5%

Small comfort, and by small we mean absolutely no comfort at all, these figures weren’t as bad as the six months prior, when circulation and Sunday circulation dropped 10.6% and 7.6% respectively.
