    What was the Washington Post at its peak?

    Wasn't the Star Ledger the country's sixth- or seventh-largest newspaper as recently as two years ago?

    Even considering the late-'90s/early-'00s numbers were padded, that's a precipitous drop for The Dallas Morning News.

    The Oakland Press should send a fruit basket to the Detroit Media Partnership.

    The fact the Miami Herald is just a tick above 160,000 is alarming and depressing.

    S-L at one point was a tad over 400K daily and close to 600K Sunday.
    Ouch!

    Yikes at The Globe's fall, which percentagewise is close to Newark's tumble.

    In York, I'd really like to see The York Dispatch's numbers. Is the Daily Record (which not long ago was at 45k) taking away all the Dispatch readers, or is part of that due to population growth?

    I thought the drop would be even worse after they doubled their newsstand prices and tripled their home delivery. (Add: And just about halved their content.)

    What is interesting is that USA Today is parsing the numbers (WSJ counts electronic subscriptions) to still tout itself as the number 1 in "printed" daily circ.
    Nothing like putting an asterisk just beneath your masthead.
