"USA Today" is once again the nation's most widely circulated newspaper.  However, that doesn't mean more actual papers are being sold. 

New numbers from the Alliance for Audited Media show Monday through Friday circulation for "USA Today" was at two-point-eight-million in the six month period leading up to September 30th. 

That's up more than 65 percent from the year before.  However, that's accounting for digital editions that weren't counted before. 

Actual print circulation fell nearly 20 percent.  The "Wall Street Journal" had the second highest total circulation, followed by "The New York Times."  (Metro Networks Inc.)
