Sun-Sentinel and Miami Herald Circ Declines Continue

It gives the Pulp no joy to bring you this news from Editor and Publisher. Circulation keeps declining -- and we're starting to grow wary of the "third-party paper" excuse, which has been used for other steep losses. Here's the key graph, local-wise:

"E&P has learned that several major papers have suffered declines in daily circ of over 7%, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Miami Herald and The Dallas Morning News."

And:

"Combined circulation for The Miami Herald and Nuevo Herald declined daily and Sunday about 8.4% and 12.3%, respectively. Terry Whitney, vice president of circulation, said the papers were cutting back on third-party and event copies under a two-year plan."
