    Now, I know a lot of people (myself included) read the majority of their news online these days. But what printed media do you go out of your way to read?

    I usually read the Sunday Times. And I avoid The Guardian, or The Grauniad/Ghastlian as we like to say.

    A very much doubt you're allowed it in the U.S, but I religiously read Private Eye. Mainly because it's funny, but also because it consistently delivers the real news that governments and big business would rather not published. And its editor, Ian Hislop, is the most sued man in British legal history.

    So, what do you 'pick-up'. And why?

    I'll pick up a Newsweek every once in awhile because when they put out big stories I often get the opportunity to just get the news and not viewpoints of the writer. Not always but more often in that magazine than others.

    Local daily paper.

    Chi Trib daily on occasion, but the Sunday edition is a must.

    Mags- some industry trade publications.

    None. But as Mad Scientist, I agree that the WSJ could be trusted to deliver information that didn't have a liberal bias. :)

    I have 24/7 availability of news on cable TV and internet cost $101.00 per month. I can read almost anything I want online. Why would I buy a newspaper?

    Newspapers weigh less than a laptop. :D

    There's something to be said for holding a paper, flipping the pages, going back to stories. The comics, crossword, Jumble, classifieds, print ads. The feel of the paper. Wife yelling for me to pick up the 5 week old stack off the floor...

    And they're useful. Like lining a flower bed as a weed guard. Shucking corn, cutting watermelon, wrapping fish guts.

    It'll be a sad day when print news disappears, if ever.

    I read local papers, online mags/papers, and the WSJ when I'm at my brother-in-law's house. I should get a subscription to it.
