Chron plans to charge more, lose readers

The SF Weekly reports that Chronicle Editor Ward Bushee (pictured) told a staff meeting that he expected price increases would result in a "double digit" decline in circulation. The Chron has already raised its Sunday newsstand price from 50 cents to $2 and its annual subscription rate from $300 to $400, and the SF Weekly predicts more prices increases are coming when the paper switches to its new presses in June.

Ah, now it's a PLAN to lose readers. Whatever it is the Chronicle ends up in the same dumper.
