Congratulations, you've discovered the next big thing.
The link above shows the Rochester newspaper's circulation numbers from 2005 to 2009 Ia quick search did not turn up anything newer).
Depending on how you look at the numbers, the paper has lost roughly 26500 readers in that five year period (roughly 26000 daily readers or 27000 Sunday readers).
I happen to know my readership numbers (I have chosen not to make them public but I will tell you they're increasing. But let's say they're not- for the sake of this example...let's say they stayed exactly the same from 2005 to 2009)-
If you extrapolate the trends, Zjabs will have more daily readers than the local paper long before 2050.
Thanks for your support- you're the pioneers (ignore the old saying that 'pioneers are the ones with arrows in their backs'- that's just a nonsense saying that Zjabs heard somewhere)
