The Audit Bureau of Circulation, a company that measures how many read US daily newspapers, has released its September 2009 six-month report that shows nearly every major daily in the US is losing readership at a faster rate than expected.
Narco News Publisher Al Giordano files a report on the quickening downswing of the major US dailies, as well as where the future of News lies:
“Of the 25 most widely read newspapers in the US, all but the Wall Street Journal – treading water at 2,024,269 readers, the Journal is now the de facto top daily in the country (but that, with only a tiny elite of 0.6 percent of US residents reading its pages) – have lost significant readership since a year ago, according to the Audit Bureau.
“…In their increasingly public ruminations about why this is ‘happening to them’ there is zero self-reflection about the biggest factor behind their demise: That they have lost credibility with their former public. Asking ‘why’ just isn’t done in polite company. The big dirty secret that they must deny at all costs is that they did this to themselves by abandoning the interests of the majority of the public in favor of targeting only those readers with expendable cash that advertisers want to reach.”
