My family doesn't. Don't really see the point. I can get this news wayyyyyyy more efficiently online. I'm almost surprised the newspaper business is still alive. Then again, it takes time for change. More people need to take advantage of their computers, and/or get smartphones/tablets.I mean a real paper newspaper.
I do not mean one of those freebies like Metro/Spits.
I stopped when I retired back in 2008.
True.The BBC USED to be a good source of unbiased opinion, but no longer.
On a side note could you steer me what are quality news outlets in the UK.I buy newspapers only rarely. When I do, I'm pretty much always annoyed by the poor quality of writing and fact checking (and I buy supposedly 'quality' papers). I just don't believe that the daily news format encourages the sort of in-depth analysis that I want to read.
I do quite regularly buy a weekly news magazine 'The Spectator'. This actually has articles I want to read, with a bit more insight.
Most of my news comes from the 'net and twitter.
Well we have-On a side note could you steer me what are quality news outlets in the UK..
I think you have to understand the bias behind various news sources, read a few, then make up your own mind.On a side note could you steer me what are quality news outlets in the UK.
Too often their stories have emotive titles that aren't borne out by the facts. They're so pervasive in UK culture that I think they've become damaging... much of their headline news is too popularist and concentrates on soundbites with poor analysis. While it's good to bully politicians a little in order to get to the truth, often BBC interviews these days say more about the interviewers ego than the facts of the story.It's sad to hear that about the BBC. My father used to always quote the BBC, came because of the war. It was seen as the touchstone of truth in occupied Europe.
Thank you very much for the information, you have certainly given me some food for thought.I think you have to understand the bias behind various news sources, read a few, then make up your own mind.
The BBC still has the best web site for breaking news
Yup, still get the daily paper - The Boston Globe.
I love to start my day with coffee and the paper.
I know, it's so ten years ago. But then, I'm so 20 years ago - so it's actually progress.
No, I guess the irony is I pay that bill, as with all my bills, by computer.Thank you very much for the information, you have certainly given me some food for thought.
I do buy Private Eye, I started after I saw Ian Hislop on the BBC. I of course do not understand some of the references.
And I bet you get your mail via the pigeon post.
