Newspaper free-fall

Holy smokes! 24 of the top 25 circulation newspapers lost year-over-year readership in the past 6 months. Many of the percentage declines were double-digit. An across-the-board change of this magnitude in such a short time is simply astonishing. Obviously, newspaper subscriptions and newstand purchases are something people cut out in a recession. Unfortunately, this almost certainly means more newspapers disappearing or, at least, shrinking dramatically.
