    Brkic is the founder and editor of The Daily Maverick.

    He has edited magazines on business and politics, technology, and wildlife. He has also published fiction and non-fiction books, most of them in Serbian. Though he has never pretended to be a reporter, his wide knowledge of politics (especially in America), combined with his experiences in a disintegrating Yugoslavia, gives him an unusual outlook on events in South Africa.

    Despite the vowel-poor surname, he tells anyone who asks that he hails from Hyde Park, Johannesburg, having spent most of his adult life in South Africa.

Following a dramatic 17% fall in circulation by USA Today to 1.88 million, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) is now officially the biggest newspaper in the US with more than two million total circulation. The picture is slightly murky here though, because the WSJ number includes 356,000 paid-for online subscriptions, so USA Today is still the biggest paper in print. To add to circulation relativity, USA Today relies heavily on distribution in hotels, airlines and airports to build is circulation, so the probable true winner on the swings and round-abouts is WSJ.
