Which newspaper do you read and why

  bumpkin 21:18 08 Jan 2013

I would like to know which newspapers other members read. I buy the Daily Mail but it is all doom and gloom. Aside from that it seems to be getting more like the Sun if you consider that to be a newspaper.

Torygraph - news for the wife and cryptic crossword for me!

I used to buy the Guardian, then photocopy the cryptic crossword, so 4 of us [working in a big office/room] could tackle the cryptic crossword together.

I've 'went off' the Metro, lately, 'cos there's no TV Guide anymore.

Normally only buy Mail on Sunday for the financial section.

[Way] before the internet, circa 1960's, our daily paper [The Scottish Daily Record] was delivered by 'George the Paperboy', usually at about 11pm. My Mum and Dad used to race each other to the back of the door to get first look at the 'Horse Racing Section'. Happy Days.

I used to buy the Daily Mail to get me through my breaks at work, but I haven't bought any newspapers for a few years now. I browse the Mail Online most days, and the comments are often the best bits.

I don't read a newspaper on a regular basis, I rely on news feeds.

As a long-time reader of Private Eye, I have given up on Newspapers but sometimes read the Telegraph, because of Family connections, otherwise getting my News Jag from Radio 4.

I don't buy them, I only cadge other peoples cast offs if I read them, and I think that they just about all as bad as each other, pushing whichever bias appeals to they're target readers.

I don't read any newspapers, I was put off them when Princess Di had her fatal accident.

I do on occassion look online, but always watch the 6 O'clock news when not at work. A bit of a Crocodile Dundee these days.
