The U.S. business and financial news provider is investing its hopes in a multimillion dollar project that aims to boost colour capacity at its U.S production sites nationwide, NewsandTech.com reported.

New York's Newspaper & Mail Deliverers boasts a 1,600-member non-editorial union, long suspected of ties to organised crime, ChattahBox yesterday reported. A similar racketeering probe in the 1990s led to criminal indictment of the union's then-president, accused and later acquitted of involvement with the Lucchese crime family. The same union has yet to shake the taint of allegations it attempted to extort the New York Post into switching delivery companies.

Total newsprint consumption in the United States plummeted 27.1 percent year-over-year in August, exceeding the decline year-to-date low of 25.6 percent, according to data released by the Pulp and Paper Products Council (PPPC), Editor & Publisher reported today. Also, after improving in July, mill operating rates again fell in August.

At least one newspaper has felt a positive impact from the consequential price decrease. Gannett Chief Financial Officer Gracia Martore said in a statement that although Gannett's newspaper advertising revenue was down 32 percent from the year before in the second quarter, the significantly lower newsprint expense resulted in a substantial decline in its operating expenses.
