PD Circulation Raises; Earth Falls Off its Axis

Posted By on Thu, May 3, 2007 at 6:38 AM

Editor and Publisher reports this week that the newspaper industry is continuing its long, slow, clockwise spin into the toilet. But E&P also reports that The Plain Dealer’s circulation actually increased in the last year. Maybe it's the return of Connie Schultz. Maybe it's the anticipation of not having to read Sam Fulwood anymore. Who knows? A Plain Dealer spokeswoman wouldn’t call us back to explain this mystery, leaving me to assume that everyone has been reading my rants about how much The PD sucks and, naturally concluding that I'm wrong -- which is always a good bet -- they're rushing out to buy the paper. It’s the only possible explanation. – Joe P. Tone
