- The Washington Post has lost 500,000 subscribers in the nearly two years that former President Donald Trump has left office, according to a report.
- The newspaper’s subscription base dropped from 3 million to around 2.5 million since January 2021, or about a 20% decline in subscribers, according to a Thursday report from The Wall Street Journal.
- It comes after The New York Times first reported in August that The Post is on track to lose money this year. The Times initially reported that The Post had fallen under 3 million subscribers and that its digital advertising revenue fell about $70 million — or roughly 15% — since the first half of 2021.
