The good news just keeps on coming, as The New York Times saw a massive drop in weekly and weekend circulation numbers - down 9% for its Sunday edition.
Of course, this downturn is industry-wide (except The Wall Street Journal, which saw an increase in circulation), but for The Times, it means one thing:
If you continue to push the anti-American, anti-Semitic and liberal line, no one will want to read your crap.
New FAS-FAX: Steep Decline at 'NYT' While 'WSJ' Gains
Print circulation continues on its steep downward slide, the Audit Bureau of Circulations revealed this morning in releasing the latest numbers for some of the country's largest dailies in the six-month period ending March 31, 2008. When a full analysis appears it is expected to find, according to sources, the biggest dip yet, about 3.5% daily and 4.5 for Sunday.
The following circulation compares the new data to the same period a year ago. Daily circulation is the Monday-through-Friday average.
-- The New York Times lost more than 150,000 copies on Sunday. Circulation on that day fell a whopping 9.2% to 1,476,400. The paper's daily circulation declined 3.8% to 1,077,256.
According to New York Times spokeswoman Diane McNulty, the company had budgeted for the declines in Sunday and daily circulation. Two-thirds of the Sunday loss stemmed from the elimination of bonus days and third-party bulk copies. Also: the paper had a single copy and home delivery price increase in July. The paper also focused on growing "highly profitable circulation," she noted.
Note from The Times: We budgeted for this! We know it is bad, but who cares! Time to party!
Not really, liberals. It will be time to party when The New York Times goes completely bankrupt, which it already is.
