Loss of the Weekly World News

It's true, dear readers. The Weekly World News is ceasing publication at the end of August. (Hat tip.) There goes the end of the great litany of newspaper readership analyses (which varies by country):

  • The Washington Times is read by the people who run the country.
  • The Washington Post is read by the people who think they run the country.
  • The New York Times is read by the people who think they ought to run the country.
  • The Boston Globe is read by the people who used to run the country.
  • The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who own the country.
  • USA Today is read by the people who are told where to travel by the people who own the country.
  • The Los Angeles Times is read by the people who wouldn't mind running the country as long they didn't have to leave California.
  • The Chicago Tribune is read by the people who think Harry Carey should run the country.
  • The National Inquirer is read by the people who think Angelina Jolie should run the country.
  • The Weekly World News is read by the people who don't care who runs the country, as long as she or he meets regularly with aliens.
