they now do the Times small, but it just doesn't look right, even though to read the proper sized one properely I have to sit crossed legged on the sofa with it sprawled out in front of me...
i don't like the times... sound stupid but i'm so used to the telegraph, i don't like the font the times is written in..

Since I started living at school (god that sounds awful) I've started reading the guardian. coz otherwise no knowledge of the outside world manages to penetrate through to me!

I read the Times because my dad gets it, and I'm too young to go and buy newspapers so I just read whatever's there...

I don't think we've ever had a telegraph!!

I got my news from the net and digital teletext. I also read the Daily Mail because my parents by it.

My favourite papers are the South Manchester Reporter and The Manchester Evening News.

The Times and occasionally the Mirror just because the scandals and stories it has are funny.

The Times, Metro when I'm on the tram or train and I get news off the internet.

does anyone else feel like they would like to read papers but they're always full of boring mundane articles because frankly there isn't enough interesting things going on in the world on a daily basis to fill a whole paper with. Today was an exception, i was reading quite a few quality articles in the sunday times. Most of the time i end up flicking through without finding an article worth reading.

Thats why I read The Sun!

Concise, entertaining articles on things I want to read about!

The Times and The Independent have both cut the size of their papers down.

But they are still big papers. Just shows how big the normal size of thew papers are.
telegraph = the best

Good for fantasy football.

Not sure about the rest of the paper - prefer the tabloids.

i've read the sun and other similar papers before and they actually really pissed me off. I hated the way they'd have headlines like 'skull found in jar' then on page 7 where the story was continued it would go on to say it was a dogs skull for medical research or something. I also hated how so many of the articles were so made up/severe bending of the truth.

I just read the Guardian online, but it's a bit irritating sometimes. It's full of ignorant lefties who can't think for themselves. The Independant is the best paper.
