    I tend to read read on websites now in the following order: BBC, Guardian, Independent, Times, Telegraph and then Times Higher Education.
    I do pretty much the same, although I always like to round off by looking on the Daily Mail for a quick laugh

    i prefer the times, used to be a fan of the independent,
    the telegraph and economist offer different views on issues that i like,
    i think the best way is to read about 3 or 4 different sources of information to reach a conclusion about an issue

    The Times any day. I don't care if it's owned by an Australian, at least it's not full of earnest-faced preachers.

    I find the layout of The Times to be irritating as well. I mean who seriously thought it would be a good idea to have the leading articles on page 2!?

    Murdoch doesn't own the Telegraph, the Barcly bro's do
    I know...realised that just after I posted but forgot to change it. I meant to write The Sun but I had The Telegraph in my head after reading it in an above post.

    You can read it all online so I'd rather spend the 50p on a bar of chocolate.

    I read Times Online anyway.

    I like both, but if had to pick between the two...Guardian. Especially for Steve Bell's amazing cartoons.

    I like The Guardian, there's so much reading and the G2 pullout brilliant. I read The Times sometimes too. I hate paying for a newspaper, so I don't really read one, I use the BBC and newspaper websites, for free

    Times for a bit less slanted political view, the Guardian's not that bad though.

    The times because it isn't new labour's cheerleader, although if i'm honest i prefer the telegraph
    Have to agree whole-heartedly here. Im a telegraph fan but would prefer the Times to the Guardian.

    to be truly honest the Guardian is down there with the Daily Star on the "biggest load of tripe ever to be printed as news". It truly is an appalling, un-ashamedly leftwing-bias joke for a newspaper.

    i find the times very very dull and boring, it can be very snobby sometimes with the smaller articles.

    guardian is ok.

    I've grown up with The Times but I now prefer The Guardian. It's a generally better package during the week. The Sunday Times is awesome though, I still buy that.
    Sums me up quite nicely :p:
