The number of newspaper taking credit for ?electronic editions? in their official circulation reports remains scattered, a look at today?s FAS-FAX report reveals.
Of course, there is the prime exception, the Wall Street Journal, which counts just over 334,000. The New York Times, in contrast, lists 6,956 daily and 4,289 on Sundays. But that still outstrips USA Today, which counts only 1,205, and The Washington Post, at 1,453 daily, or Washington Times at 399.
Topping them, The Christian Science Monitor counts 2,117, while the Columbus Dispatch clocks in with 4,016. Then there?s the Minneapolis Star Tribune at 7,409.
But most papers don?t count any. Others have very small numbers, less than two dozen. But some smaller papers with relatively high numbers stand out. The Gastonia (NC) Gazette, for example, counts 902 daily ? about two-thirds that for the Washington Post. The Butler (Pa.) Eagle counts 1,333 daily. The New Haven Register takes 1,689 and the Paducah (Ky.) Sun lists 1,613 ? more than USA Today.
