Only 47 Million Americans Read A Printed Daily

from New York Times: The average circulation of the nation’s newspapers fell in the six months ended in September, as new federal restrictions on telemarketing and a more conservative approach by some publications to counting paid readership put further pressure on an already struggling industry.
The losses were widespread, with two-thirds of papers reporting flat or declining circulation, including The Washington Post and The Daily News, according to an analysis by the Newspaper Association of America of figures released yesterday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.
The average daily circulation for the nation’s 841 daily newspapers fell 0.9 percent, to 47,711,751, for the six months ended Sept. 30, as compared with the period a year earlier, according to the newspaper association.
