    NY Times is my paper.

    I'll pick up the NY Post for some sports articles, but that paper is a total rag. Beth Stern has been on page 2 twice in the last year. :snicker:

    receive? i get the times and the wsj.

    trust? none: their editors are all too chickenshit terrified of their advertisers to print the whole truth. much is whitewashed.

    The terms say new subscribers only, but I keep renewing and no one says shit. The WSJ is expensive. I'm not paying for it. Miles earned for business travel makes the deal even better.

    yeah i don't think they care: there are small companies on ebay who resell WSJ subscriptions at more than half off the normal subscription rate. i think they just don't pay attention.

    This thread makes me sad with nostalgia.
    I traditionally used to spend hours every Saturday and Sunday morning sitting in the Lazy boy reading several newspapers cover to cover. Primarily SD Union Tribune, LA Times, WS Journal.
    Our local paper is literally a shell of what it once was. And most 'printed' news in now old, incomplete and many times inaccurate before it even leaves the press.

    The internet has killed the newspaper business.
    I must admit I do enjoy Dawgs more than the tame 'letters to the editor' section in newspapers.

    Wall Street Journal. Don't pay much attention to the Op/Ed section.

    None. By the time they come out everything in them was already reported hours if not a day before.

    WSJ and NY Post. I agree with Bush I, as the brother/father of a serviceperson, I will never read that rag the NYT again after it printed troop locations in a time of war. They should have hung that fey bitch Pinch Sulzberger from a tree, that's what George Washington would have done.

    I tried the Wall Street Journal, but I guess around my area- there isn't a big enough demand. After a couple of months of receiving it daily, they started sending in the regular mail. They couldn't understand my problem with receiving today's edition, tomorrow(?) Anyway- the older I get, the less I give a sh*t about the news. It's the same themes, different generation.
