Vin Crosbie continues campaigning against the waste of money occured by newspapers websites and digital editions. This time (see former postings in February), he gives a few circulation figures for some US newspapers' digital editions:
USA Today – 900 self-reported (0.05 percent of the total weekday print circulation of 2,154,539).
The New York Times – 3,172 ABC-audited (0.28 percent of 1,118,565).
The Washington Post – 424 ABC (0.06 percent of 732,904).
Boston Globe – 321 self-reported (0.03 percent of 452,109).
Arkansas Democrat Gazette – 3,418 s-r (1.8 percent of 187,601).
With one expection, none of those newspapers have been able to signup a number of digital edition subscribers equal to one-tenths of one percent of that newspaper's print circulation
