      Up, useful, and interesting. For me, the reading of online news is more about perspective, although saving the environment is also a nice bonus. Actually I tend to read most of my news online, as most countries have some form of censorship on the news. Reading online means you can get honest and external views on the same story, although you always have to consider the intention behind the story.

      Shared, up, and interesting.

      I agree that it's much better for the environment to get our news online, but for those of us that depend on actual newspapers as a job source, I hope it doesn't go away any time soon!

      Hi breathing

      I prefer to watch the news on tv or listen to it on the radio.

      I do think that reading the newspaper is a better option than actually buying the paper as it saving trees.

      Voted up and interesting

      Enjoy your day.
