    WSJ: Slide in Newspaper Circulation Quickens
    Wall Street Journal shows increase, while others show declines in circulation.
    This hints at what customers are willing to pay for. I don’t know about the others but the WSJ charges for their on-line edition; the NYT and the LAT don't charge.

    6-mos ended as of March 1:
    USA Today – down 7.5%
    Wall Street Journal – up 0.6%
    New York Times – 3.5%
    L.A. Times – down 6.6%
    Washington Post – down 1.2%
    New York Daily News – down 14.3%
    New York Post – down 20.5%
    Chicago Tribune – down 7.5%
    Houston Chronicle – down 14%
    Arizona Republic – down 5.7%

    With Paul Krugman being the intellectual support this administration has to pursue it's ridiculous policies of attempting to borrow our way out of debt and unemployment.... they surely have a bailout lined up.

    If that guy didn't have an avenue to broadcast his fascist ideas, we'd be all a lot better off though. :(

    They probably need a government bail out.
