Does anyone still read the newspaper for news anymore?

I don't trust the mainstream media. I'll occassionally watch the mainstream media on TV but I'll only watch it for local news because I have no other real way of getting local news about my area. But I won't watch mainstream media for news on world events. I use the internet for that. I find the internet a far more trustworthy source of news. I think that the mainstream media hasn't really tried to practice fair journalism all that much. Anyone who studies journalism would know that the mainstream media can be extremely biased. I like how the internet isn't completely regulated by the federal government. After all who would want to read or watch a biased form of news?

I still subscribe to the newspaper. Usually my father and grandfather read pretty much the whole thing, but I myself only do two things with it. When I wake up in the morning, I skim over the front page, very rarely reading beyond the first few paragraphs of any given article. Then I grab the sports section and hit the bathroom. So to answer your original question, no, I don't usually read the newspaper for news. I rely on the internet for that.

Local news yes, but other than that, I look in it for classifieds and the editorials. Even the local news is biased in their reporting of the news.2
