The Los Angeles Times has lost more subscribers in the past four years than any U.S. newspaper and it isn't even close. Editor & Publisher compared 2007 circulation to 2003 and found the LAT had shed 201,000 readers. Only one other paper, the San Francisco Chronicle, was in six figures with 147,000 lost buyers. No, it doesn't separate out purposely lost circulation or acknowledge new web readers. Story and chart.
