This week in the buggywhip trade...

Newspaper circulation in the US takes another kick in the teeth.

In Canada, it's almost as bad, with the National Post in freefall. The Post has lost 10% of its readers in the past six months. The rest of the country's newspapers have shown slight rises and drops in circulation. It will be interesting to see, in the next set of ABC numbers, readers' reactions to the re-designed Globe, and whether the hostile verdict of the pundits it will have any impact on the plans for a re-design of the Toronto Star.
Another interesting note: the Journal de Quebec, which posted the largest ciculation gains of any Canadian daily, is now locked in a very nasty labour dispute between its union and Quebecor.
