WSJ Passes USAToday as Top Circulation US Newspaper

Editor & Publisher buried the lede down to the fourth para, second sentence in the article linked above. Here's the bad news for the Old Grey Lady Tabloid Streetwalker & the rest of the Lefty Fishwrap Birdcage bottom dead-tree @ss-wipe material:
Circulation at many of the country's largest newspapers continued a steep slide as the Audit Bureau of Circulations Monday morning released the latest figures for the six months ending September 2009 -- proving yet again that the industry can't shake the dramatic declines that have taken hold over the past several years.

On a comparable basis, ABC reported that for the 379 newspapers filing with the organization, average daily circulation plunged 10.6% to 30,395,652 -- one of the most severe drops in overall circulation. Sunday circulation for 562 reporting newspapers was down 7.4% to 40,012,253.

Check out E&P's list of the top 25 daily papers in the nation by circ, here. Go here for a list of the top 25 papers on Sunday. And For a list of the top 10 gainers this time around, go here.

USA Today had earlier announced a 17% hit. The Wall Street Journal overtook USA Today as the No. 1 daily in the country, according to ABC. Circulation at the Journal was up slightly, 0.6% to 2,024,269.

Here are the top ten gainers:
YORK (PA.) DAILY RECORD -- 55,370 -- 16.45%
WOMEN'S WEAR DAILY -- 53,142 -- 14.31%
THE OAKLAND (MICH.) PRESS -- 68,067 -- 7.26%
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL -- 175,841 -- 6.56%

NEW HAVEN (CONN.) REGISTER -- 70,559 -- 0.79%
MOBILE (ALA.) PRESS-REGISTER -- 92,849 -- 0.75%
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL -- 2,024,269 -- 0.61%
THE FORUM, FARGO, N.D. -- 50,131 -- 0.39%

Only a dishonest libtard blog like E&P would not note that the amount the WSJ gained was probably more than all the rest of the tiny publications listed combined, if counted in numerical rather than a percentage basis.
Here are the top 25 LOSERS:

McClatchy and the NYT Co. claimed their revenues both gained at a rate of 6.7%, but anyone who believes anything coming out of Pinch Sulzberger's collapsing disinformation apparatus must have a bucket of hair perched on the top of their necks.

A mental defective "editor" of E&P named Greg Mitchell has a hilarious E&P article

concerning leaks about the Plame movie sponsored by serial movie loozer Sean Penn, another libtard high-school dropout who is making movies that lose more money than ever, but who keeps getting Oscar nominations from an industry that like its dead-tree counterpart in the news business, won't be around much longer.

The flick will be another platform for disseminating the libtard lies and urban legends the DNC RICO churns out to bamboozle the half-wits that call themselves the "reality-based community."

Like Pinch Sulzberger, Harvey Weinstein and the other ultra-left Hollyweird retardos are committing some sort of elaborate public suicide ritual which amuses people unable to appreciate the subtle nuanced "reality-based copmunity's" pathetic propagation of hoaxes and support for criminal organizations like ACORN & MediaMutters & other polymorphous perversions of the political scene in the US.
