Newspaper circulation continues to fall

The Newspaper Association of America reported on Monday that U.S. newspaper circulation is continuing its downward trend.

Daily circulation for the six months ended September 30 fell 2.8%; Sunday circulation fell 3.4%. These were the sharpest drops in the last 15 years. The Los Angeles Times suffered an 8% drop during this period, the largest of any newspaper.

It appears that the migration from print to the Internet for consumers is accelerating.
