Most popular newspaper fonts

Study of Newspaper Fonts Released

Ascender Corporation announced the release of a study on the typefaces that appear on the front pages of America's top daily newspapers. This is the first study of its kind and it identified the most popular typefaces, sources, and the pervasive use of custom fonts.
The list:

1. Poynter Series;
2. Franklin Gothic;
3. Helvetica;
4. Utopia;
5. Times;
6. Nimrod;
7. Century Old Style;
8. Interstate;
9. Bureau Grotesque;
10. Miller.

Interesting. One of my favorites, helvetica, makes the list. But no courier? I‘m mortified!
