    Do you still buy the newspaper or read all the news online?

    I still like to actually have the printed real thing even though it costs alot.

    I agree with you Rutley. I still love the feel and smell of the newspaper in my hands.  I can copy or cut out those article of particular interest and which I would like to refer to at a later date.  My husband has been trying to get me to read online, but at this point, I am still resisting.
    Thanks for a great question.   Myrtle

    Without a doubt, online and I don't have to dispose of papers that clog a landfill somewhere.

    Still have a local paper delivered to our house every day. There is something about being to actually flip through it. I do read a lot more news online as well though.

    I will never get tired of reading newspapers. I  have loved reading the stories, articles, news,  features, etc. printed on the good,old papers since I was a child. The only difference is that I also read the news online.

    I love to have a newspaper in the morning. May be on a particular day I may not get time to go through it in the morning but I try to read it as soon as possible.

    I go online mostly. CNN and my local papers. But I do occasionally like to read the local paper. Sometimes I see a good ad in there that I wouldn't otherwise online. Or a smaller article that wasn't put on the online one.

    Still read the real thing everyday. There is nothing like getting the Sunday morning edition with a good cup of coffee and trading sections with your loved ones!

    I purchase a Sunday paper, but only for coupons. Otherwise, I read all the news online.

    I read news online but buy newspapers to read views.

    I neither read the paper nor use the internet for news coverage.  I watch the local news everyday and national news on television.  Only when I want to investigate a news item deeper, do I seek further information online.

    Online, because it means less trash I have to take to the curb when I'm through with it.

    I work for a newspaper publisher so it does my heart good to see some replies here from people who still read them!

    No, I definitely prefer buying an actual printed newspaper. If I didn't have a chance to buy a newspaper and there was something I really wanted to read, then I would go online.

    I gave up on our local newspaper years ago! I read the news online and get better news that way.

    We read the news online or watch television depending on how much time is available because we do like to keep up with what is happening regarding the 2012 presidential election. Although we are rather old-fashioned and enjoy turning the pages of a newspaper while enjoying a cup of coffee, it is just more convenient for our lifestyles not to have to bundle up stacks of newspaper and try to find a recycling station.
