A STEADY SLIDE: Newspaper circulation continues to decline, down 4.6 percent for editions published Monday though Friday and also falling 4.9 percent for Sunday editions published during the six-month period ending Sept. 30, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations. During the same time frame in 2007, circulation was down 2.6 percent for dailies and 3.5 percent for Sunday editions. The new report from ABC reports that The New York Times’ weekday circulation fell 3.6 percent, while the New York Post dropped 6.3 percent. USA Today and the Wall Street Journal’s circulation remained virtually unchanged during the period, and the Washington Post had a slight decrease of 1.9 percent. The Washington Post Co. also suffered an outlook change from “stable” to “negative” from Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investor Services. The Los Angeles Times, which said Monday it would lay off 75 more people, was down 5.2 percent. — Amy Wicks
