I have to wonder how online readers are impacting those dropping numbers. Why pay for it when you can get it for free? I read many of these papers online.

Same here. I can sit in my jammies and read all sorts of papers, left, right, and in the middle. I still get a print copy of my local newspaper and the Wall Street Journal.

The local Albuquerque newspapers and TV news broadcasts are a poor example of the Media. They are so bad as is typical away from the national big urban centers. Maybe I'm spoiled from my lifelong residence in the San Francisco Bay Area until I moved to Albuquerque. ABQ has many charms but their Media is not among them.

I get a local newspaper for local news. For everything else, I read a broad selection of US and international newspapers.

Decline of Newspapers
These statistics prove that newspapers are the slowest way to obtain the news. You can learn the news much faster by the internet, tv, or radio. Newspapers need to have more indepth articles to attract many readers.
