Print media may be dying

Establishment Media Dying Slowly But Surely lists top twenty five newspapers in the US. They have averaged around 10% decline in circulation over the last year.

This graph shows the average weekly circulation for six newspapers over the last 19 years. The LA Times was hit the hardest, dropping from over 1.2 million in 1990 to less than 650,000 in 2009.

I am not surprised people are just to bussy to read the paper, don't want to pay for it to trash their house and they are on the internet more anyway. I can't say this is so bad the news paper is full of bad news anyway. The internet is great for making money and getting information.

Thanks for the info.

Part of my morning routine is to scan Google News and a half dozen other sources of news. I think it is faster, and has greater variety.

But in I also like reading the newspaper. (Though I don't like our local paper.) Breakfast and comics just go together.

I wonder if the print media will go the way of the wagon?
