    Guardian/Independent. Don't pay though - visit the library for all my newspaper and magazine needs. Get to read Time, the New Scientist, TES, the Economist... for free. That's the win.

    I prefer the times I agree with it more, plus the guardian has a sort of anti British bias in my opinion.

    Why compare those two? Surely it would be better to compare the Guardian to the Daily Telegraph, and the Independant to the Times?
    Why so?

    However, three years of Journalism taught me not to read any of them.
    Why so?

    Why so?
    Because the Times and the independent are both in a "compact" format. The times being a right of centre paper, whilst the independent being a left of centre paper. It just seems like the obvious two to compare. But maybe that's just me.

    Both are newspapers with international recognition but I find the Times lack a bit of political bias (which really should be a good characteristic). It's supposed to be slightly right-wing but I've never really sensed it in the way that you do with the Telegraph.

    I prefer the take that the Guardian and Independent have on the news.

    It's a tough one but I have to go with the Guardian, even so it can be so ostentatious sometimes.

    The Times. I'm about as liberal as they come yet The Guardian's condescending biased slant drives me up the wall. It does have some good columnists though, so I use their website solely for that purpose.

    Isn't the times recently anti establishment? Regardless of the establishment?

    Not that I've noticed. In its reporting, I find it's the least biased newspaper. It has a pretty varied mixture of columnists too.

    I get a lovely warm feeling inside when I buy The Times - it's akin to that first sip of Lucozade when you have a hangover.

    Saturday Guardian is pretty sexy yeah.

    The Guide is the only newspaper supplement to keep up with funny internet memes, not report them 6 months after they stopped being funny.
