CORRECTION: The daily-circulation chart originally omited the Detroit Free Press, which now ranks as the 18th largest-circulation daily newspaper. The current No. 19 and No. 20 papers were therefore ranked one higher, and the St. Petersburg Times, which is no longer listed, was ranked No. 20. We regret the error. (Corrected Nov. 3, 10:40 a.m.)
