More numbers = more readers?

Jill Dutt, the very brave managing editor for the Financial section of The Washington Post, invited readers to chat with her online yesterday about the changes that were made to the section. Among the comments:
For me and for so many other Washington Post customers, November 14, 2006 is the day that The Washington Post died. What numbskull thought that to save newsprint costs, it would be wise to perform a slash and burn edit of the stock tables. In this new reduced format, they are useless.

If The Washington Post is to have a partial list, why should I look at that listing and then have to look at a web site. I might as well skip the Business section and go solely on a web site.

Whoever prompted you to make the changes in today's Business section - ought to be fired.

How refreshing! People actually advocating for more newspaper pages (albeit, pages with more numbers than words on them). Dutt should be pleased that readers are still so fired up about the information they're getting from the newspaper.
