On a personal note, I was very disappointed to see that the Arizona Republic was down so little on Sunday. Ours is a truly rotten (as in "liberal") paper, but I guess I should take heart in that it's daily circulation was down bbig and the the Sunday circulation wasn't up considering that Phoenix continues to grow in population.

 

NEW YORK And here are the top 10 newspapers to gain daily circulation.

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%

CHATTANOOGA (TENN.) TIMES FREE PRESS — 69,569 — 2.18%

OGDEN (UTAH) STANDARD-EXAMINER — 62,062 — 1.89%

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%

NEW YORK POST — 343,361 — (-11.07%)

MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL — 334,240 — (-10.97%)

THE BALTIMORE SUN — 322,491 — (-8.03%)

THE COLUMBUS (OHIO) DISPATCH — 316,202 — (-4.75%)

THE SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE — 309,571 — (-9.58%)

 

Of particular note here is the fact that there are no big liberal papers that grew in circulation, and the little paper that took on Hairy Reid, the Vegas Review-Journal, grew significantly.

I was also pleased to see that the liberal big three, Times, Times, Post were hefty losers.

One bit of bad news is the big drop in numbers at the New York Post, but it's a small price to pay to have so many others foundering.

Hey, it's a small sliver of good news and hope, but it's all I got.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Hope is all we got.That reminds me of something. Do you remember the campaign slogan for John Kerry and John Edwards? "Hope is on the way" I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen.

  2. TedWest says:

    Interresting you should mention the hope factor. Here's a terrific column that sheds more light on that as well as my assessment of Snowy.

  3. Darcy says:

    That is an excellent column.It's so easy to make the world perfect when you are focusing on Hopes and Dreams. I prefer to live in the imperfect here and now.
