Does anyone still read an actual newspaper?
I miss sitting at the table with my coffee and reading the newspaper, shuffling through the sections, reading the classifieds, etc. I stopped my subscription years ago. Do you still get the paper?
I don't read the newspaper, but whenever I'm visiting my grandparents I tend to look for the for sale section just to see if there's any cheap items for sale.
Thanks for answering, Jacob. I glance through the newspapers when I go to the library. Nostalgic think, it is.
No problem Phyllis, ahh. Here's a thought, why don't you write an article along the lines of this "Are newspaper outdated"
Good idea, Jacob - but, I was hoping you or another who replies will write a hub on it. That would be interesting. To write a hub, answer the question again the click on "write a hub".
Ahh okay, I don't really write about stuff like that so we'll just have to wait
Nope. Why bother with an amateurish local version of important news when I could, y'know, access the greatest information device humanity has yet created and go straight to the source?
The only thing worthwhile in the newspaper are coupons and comics. Namely Classic Peanuts and Zits.
I don't read an actual newspaper but I do know a few people who do. It's usually the older people who still have subscriptions to newspapers or buy one every morning. I get my news mostly from various legitimate news websites.
Hi Jonas. I depend on the internet for national / world news, but sometimes do like to read the local newspaper, which is also on the internet. I guess I just like to remember my Dad reading newspaper, hearing the paper noise.. Thanks for answering.
Yes, I read. I am habitual of reading the real paper since 40 years and still continue. Previously, I was used to "The Hindu" in Chennai during late 60s and 70s. Then it was not available in Northern India. So, I had to switch over to Times of India. Now, since 2005, I am subscribed to "Deccan Chronicle" and love it very much with its interesting columns and editorials. I view all pages, mainly headlines and some important news. But, I love to read the centre page containing editorial and special columns of great writers on social issues, politics, religion, spirituality and Finance topics. Then I go through sports news. It takes one hour before or after breakfast.
After that, when at computer, I log on to Times of India and Economic Times to see some more interesting articles and comment on them, even though not able to do so daily now.
Hi Venkatachari. I, too love the "page containing editorial and special columns of great writers on social issues, politics, religion, spirituality and Finance topics." Thank you so much for answering. I enjoyed reading your comment.
Thank you Phyllis. I am humbled by your praise and selecting this as best answer. Thanks a lot.
Yup. My Parents have a subscription and before that my grandparents . So reading newspapers is something that has been handed down to me . I guess reading newspapers has become a habit now. Of course I prefer Science, Sports and Tech news. The editorial is the last page I scan.
I work for an actual newspaper so naturally I appreciate everyone who still reads one!
yes I read a print newspaper. The newspaper that I read has no political agenda and presents the facts in depth and then leaves you to form an opinion. The editorial and any opinion pieces are clearly marked as such. I enjoy the wide range of topics that the newspaper covers and it does not normally cover celebrity gossip, or any of the nothing topics that the other newspapers and news outlets in my country does. I also enjoy the puzzles and more light hearted content.
I just look for the coupons. lol Maybe the front page, but my husband reads it through.
We moved to a small town of 3,000 and get the local events paper in the mail. It lets us know what's going on, when, and where. Also interesting introductions to businesses in the area we otherwise wouldn't know about. The normal paper, though, no thanks.
Yes, it is not quite a lost art just yet haha... I'm not sure for how much longer though.
