Wall Street Journal now the top-selling newspaper

Overall newspaper sales continue to plummet in U.S.


The Wall Street Journal has surpassed USA Today as the top-selling newspaper in the United States, according to figures released Monday by the U.S. Audit Bureau of Circulations. USA Today saw its worst decline ever between April and September, down more than 17 per cent to 1.9 million copies, as a drop in travel has led to fewer single copy sales in airports and hotels. Overall, newspaper circulation in the United States fell by 10.6 per cent during the six month period as the industry grapples with increased competition from the Internet and moves to limit unprofitable sales in the face of declining ad revenue.
