Most Hispanic newspapers are free, community oriented publications. In general, community publications have not been as hard hit by the recession and advertising decline as large metropolitan dallies. The average decline in circulation of the top 25 U.S. daily newspapers (published from Monday to Friday) during the six month period ended on September 30, 2009 was 11.02%, according to recent data released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. For the top 25 U.S. Sunday newspapers the average decline was 8%.
