    What is the point of reading a newspaper?

      Depends on the newspaper and the reader.

              Then don't read anything at all. The only way to avoid both.

    Like every other publication they have the good and they have the bad.

    I stopped buying newspapers twenty years  ago.  Internet, TV, radio and a very few magazines  are enough.

        More like cheap man :-)

        But, yeah, I didn't like the waste and I didn't like newsprint on my fingers.  Most of it was just junk, anyway.  I'll take Google News any day.

    I don't understand why people spend money on newspapers.  You can get the news or any other info quicker and free using the internet.

      But not quite as verifiable and responsible.

        On the contrary - far more verifiable because you can quickly check multiple sources.

    Be careful with anything you read, look at the source. i stay away from anything owned by the now only five major corporations that have control of the media. Seems amazing...Look for truly independent news only, if that's possible.

    Our 2 local major newspapers here are great but the others seem to equal the toilet paper somewhat. Especially the magazine types.

    Toronto newspapers certainly have more of this thing on them as I use them as my cats' pan lining before I put some litter in it. Very handy. One draw back - cannot recycle them aferwards, my cats like to read too much...
