USA: vendite dei giornali a picco


Le vendite dei giornali in America accusano un’ulteriore, seria flessione, come segnala lo stesso New York Times:

Newspaper sales moved sharply lower this year, falling about 10 percent in the six months ended Sept. 30 compared with the same period last year, according to figures released on Monday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

Circulation has been sliding since the early 1990s, but in the last few years, the pace of the decline has accelerated sharply. In the same six-month period a year ago, circulation fell at roughly half the rate. The decline has been attributed to the continued migration of readers to the Web, the deep recession, newspapers intentionally shedding unprofitable circulation and, in some cases, waning reader interest as budget cuts reduce the content of the papers.
