I think of it more as a magazine or journal.

Here's the estimated (very precise estimates!) circulation for all those mentioned I could find:

The Sun _ 3,541,002
The Daily Mail _ 2,342,982
The Daily Mirror _ 2,148,058
The Economist _ 1,009,759
The Daily Telegraph _ 923,815
The Daily Express _ 916,055
The Daily Star _ 819,203
The Times _ 619,682
The Guardian _ 345,000
The Independent _ 250,000
The Scotsman _ 68,000
The Morning Star _ 13,000

Beforehand I suspected that the leftie papers wouldn't be high on the list, they're doing quite well here though.

The Independant is good. But I usually read The Times.

For me, it's a close match between the Guardian and the Independent. But my favourite newspaper is the local Eastern Daily Press.

Socialist Worker is my favourite paper. It used to be a bit too revolutionary for my liking, but it has evolved into a very good read. The Morning star has a lot of good pieces on things happeneing in the world no one else talks about. The Independent (Hari not included) is usually good too.

For magazines I used to go for the New Statesman, but I prefer Socialist Review nowadays.

Guess you're one of those people who have heard of objectivity but don't want any truck with it...

I wouldn't vote Tory to save my life but the Daily Telegraph usually manages to produce an interesting variety of stories. I get the Times if I'm travelling at rush hour though because trying to handle a broadsheet on a packed train is a nightmare.

As for The Economist, they do a few good articles but I wouldn't buy it weekly. Luckily, they offer students a full subscription to their website for $15 a quarter so I plump for that instead.

The Times. Though its not as good as it used to be, and tabloidising it offends my sensibilites (whats the point in reading a quality newspaper if its not visibly a broadsheet so others know you're better than tabloid readers? ) its still better than most.

Yeah, I hate the tabloid version, everything is so crammed in. Reading the broadsheet just made you feel clever. I wish they would do what the Guardian are planning- the European format, like Le Monde, which is smaller than British broadsheets but still quite intelligent looking.

The Guardian (and the Observer) have, I feel, the right blend of smug leftism, god quality reporting and silly articles to match my personality (also, love the mags on sat/sun).
I read some redtops to keep abreast of things in general without going into too much detail, and I read the Daily Mail to get angry - i loathe that paper!
