Competitive Media Reporting has changed the classification of The New York Times
from a major metro newspaper to a national newspaper, allowing it to be compared and compete with The Wall Street Journal
and USA Today
, beginning in 1999. The New York Times
has aggressively pursued national circulation over the last two years and is now currently available in 156 markets nationwide, selling approximately 1.2 million copies.
