One thought on “Newspaper circulation falls again

  1. Interesting to see just how much circulation has dropped. Was intrigued to see that the sales figure for weekday hard copy The Australian wasn’t mentioned, just the Weekend Australian. Wonder how much it has dropped? Nearly 40,000 have paid for the dubious pleasure of reading it online? Their paywalls don’t bother me as the first paragraph of anything from New Ltd is more than enough.
