    How many newspapers do you read

    Do you read different newspapers, to get more complete informations, or to get different points of view?

    How many (online or offline) newspapers do you check at least once a week?

    Re: How many newspapers do you read

    I read "la libre" (a belgian newspaper, which is quite neutral) every day, and "De Standaard" (in Dutch, which is also neutral) several times a week.

    I used to read "Le Figaro" or "Le Monde" (French newspapers) quite often, but now I have switched to "The Guardian" for the international news.

    Sometimes I read "Foreignpolicy" but that's not really a newspaper.

    I read the Wall Street Journal, the Army Times, and the Economist, if I can snag a free copy of the New York Times I'll read that too. I know the Economist is a magazine but it does refer to itself as a newspaper.

    I used to read 2 or 3 newspapers but now I get my news from cable tv,internet as well as regular broad cast news. PLus news on tv and the internet is more up to date than a news paper.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Ah crap, I answered the poll before I read the OP so I assumed you only meant print papers. Online I read 2-3, though that's more supplemental than anything as most of my news comes from online non-newspapers like the BBC's site.

    I did the exact same thing.

    Bub in American Anglish we consider "Newspaper" to be print and unless specified in the question (i.e. not the OP) we vote as if you were asking "how many [print] newspapers do you read".. to which I answer 0.

    With that said. I read many online NewsPapers, some that I am not even sure are considered to be Newspapers:
    New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Le Monde, Haaretz, Jerusalem Post, etc.

    For me it is not about going to the specific website and reading what it has to offer, but using hubs (news.google.com) (news.google.fr) (news.google.co.il) (realclearpolitics) to read interesting articles.
