Survey Asks

Do any of you still read print newspapers. I take ours Friday through Monday, but am considering dropping it. How about you?

Every day.

We have it delivered, but there are days it goes unread. We read it mostly for sports, local news, movie times and reviews, the food section, travel, book review, etc. I avoid the front section because Washington Post's blatant bias gives me indigestion.

okay, that's two for . . . hmmm. I do like the local stuff, but there is so little of that anymore. And the majority of it is online. Thanks for the input!

We also found ourselves not reading the paper so I canceled it. Then we missed a couple of important and timely items so I called back and subscribed again! Whether we read it every day or not, there are those times that we do read something invaluable. Fwiw, that's the lesson I learned anyway. :)

Good topic!

Nope, not the print edition anyway.

I'll occasionally pick up a Friday paper just for the Weekender supplement listing shows, upcoming events, etc. for the weekend and week ahead.

I get all the news I want from the Internet, radio, and local TV.

Thanks, Susan and Roscoe! I take your cautionary tale to heart, Susan . . . and I also like the idea of picking it up as needed, Roscoe.

All good food for thought.

I always loved having the newspaper to read but after a while on the computer, I found I didn't have time to read it anymore and they were just piling up waiting to be fire-starters. I first canceled the daily news at a nice yearly savings and after a while I canceled the weekly paper too. I only get free papers now and just barely have time to read those.

We haven't taken ours (Cincinnati Enquirer) for about 15 years. It's a lousy paper. I was by that time getting all my news from the internet, and my husband was getting the paper down at his office. So I've been saving trees for a while.
