A Wikinews update from May this year reports that US newspaper circulations continue to decline. The only winners appear to have been USA Today and the NYT. The former, with figures of 2.2m, is still some way short of the biggest selling UK title, The Sun, with 3.3m. Furthermore, the total circulation of the top ten US titles (some 5.4m) is dwarfed by the equivalent top ten UK figures (approx 11.5m). The US newspaper business does have a long tail with bigger circulations in many regionals but if you consider the relative populations of 247m versus 57m, it’s still clear the Brits have an extraordinary affection for their daily papers.
