Greeting,  BPers!

Do you read any newspapers?  I read online now; almost never a hard copy.  I peruse a variety on newspapers on a weekly basis.  I usually take a look at The Missoulian, the Chicago Tribune, the Oregonian, CSM, and a several others.  My favorite thing to read is Mountain West News.

On-line at random and the  occasional Bozeman Chronicle that gets left in the breakroom at work.

Newspapers? Do they even print those anymore?

These things are going the way of the 8-track, cassette, VHS tape, and all the other outdated items.

CD and DVD are next on the chopping block.

I grew up in the paper newspaper era and read news, not just the comics and sports.   As a younger  adult, long before the web era, declined daily or Sunday subscriptions to classic newspapers despite being pounded for years to do so, because like television, did not want to spend an hour or two each day doing so.  And Sundays was rarely at home.  Much like my aversion to watching endless fictional tv network programming of the day as most Americans.  But I did read newspapers on the fly irregularly like when a copy was laying about at workplaces during lunch.

No paper newspapers regularly and no specific online newspapers regularly.  However I read lots of linked news stories from a variety of web portals like Google, Yahoo, SFgate, CNN, Fox.   Have bookmarks to several classic newspapers like NYT, WP, LAT, CSM etc and some regional small town newspapers.  

In any case I greatly value the newspaper industry and hope all those employed in that service find ways to transition into the new media.

Eventually, perhaps. But in this area, there is no better news source than the news-"papers" — that is, the online versions. The network media of TV and radio don't come close. The Internet blogs are not even in the running.

The national media pick up a story now and then like some absent-minded pedestrian who gets struck by the news at a random intersection. Otherwise, they are not even paying attention.

What happens in the big city with its multiple TV stations doesn't always follow so quickly in the less populous areas of this country.

I read the Newark Star-Ledger and the local weekly (Township Journal) in hard copy.  I read the Wall Street Journal and New York Times whenever they cross my path.  I read  many others on my travels.

We have a local newspaper that is delivered free.  I read that.

I regularly visit the 9 News (TV) website.  If I want more detail, I'll usually go to the Denver Post.

Subscribe to the SF Chronicle.  The spouse got us an on-line subscription to the NY Times, but I mostly let him read it and send me links to interesting articles.  

I also keep an eye on the Boulder Camera and sometimes the Seattle Times, just to know what's up in our other home towns :)

I occasionally read hard copies of the local Colorado Daily, since it's distributed freely at work.  But other than that, nothing consistently.  I'll read various stories from various sources online.

While I peruse the online versions of several newspapers, plus the Drudgereport for my daily dose of rightist newslinks, I prove my old age by subscribing and reading daily over breakfast my local hometown paper (Provo Daily Herald). I see a lot of duplication in national/international news, but if you want to know what the city council did, which of your old friends/distant relatives departed this mortal coil, and other things of no concern to anyone more than 50 miles away, there is nothing like the local paper.
Not to mention the sports and comics.

I read the Jackson Hole Daily almost every day and the News & Guide on Wednesdays. Online I favor the New York Times and Washington Post as IMO the best National News Sources we have. I will read editorials from a number of different publications. I read the High Country News about half the time it comes out.

I regularly read the Tampabay Times and New York Times both on line and occasionally a paper copy.  I also read a number of other on line papers from all other the country.   With my interest in health care I read the on line publication Health News Florida daily and get health news updates from the CDC, Kasier Health News and others.  I watch a number of the news channels primarily BBC News, Aljazeera News, CNN.  I watch some of the more slanted new channels at times including MSNBC and Fox News.

Growing up it was always the Billings Gazette and the Cody Enterprise. I still follow the billings paper online but Cody requires a paid access to view more than three online stories a month. I just don't.

Here the Eureka Times-Standard and the Daily Triplicate and the Curry Coastal Pilot are used in newspapers in education projects in the school and available on line too. I only grab a stack of leftovers from the school to start fires in my woodstove
