Newspapers saw major growth in digital editions in the six months that ended Sept. 30, tempering losses in print, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations' FAS-FAX report. Digital editions at the leading 25 papers increased to 2,169,843, a 63% gain. Individually, The Wall Street Journal remained the top circulating U.S. newspaper, with 2.1 million paying readers. Digital circulation also increased at papers including The New York Times, The Denver Post and The Dallas Morning News. ABC counts "non-replica" digital editions as distinct entities from online versions that mirror the print product.
