Do you still enjoy your morning news paper?

Do you still enjoy your morning news paper?
We all have access to news through our tv channels and our favourite sites on the Net. As for me I still like my news paper. I like the sound of the cycle bell that belongs to our newspaper boy, every morning. . I go to the gate and there will be our paper. I prefer reading the headline sipping my tea but sometimes these days there will be half a page dangling blocking the headlines and this annoys me. I have taken this up with the newspaper owners.

Do you still buy the newspaper?

I still enjoy reading newspapers early in the morning especially when I am on a vacation. I only miss this occasionally, particularly when I am on official or personal trips. I try to keep myself up to date with the current events and happenings both locally and internationally. Whenever I can't meet up with the news before checking out of the house, I use the car radio rather.

Despite there being other modes it is strange that we still want our morning paper. Even a local paper can be found on the Net these days. Old habits die hard they say and this is one old habit I suppose will not go in a hurry. Newspapers have other uses too.

Reading newspaper is a very good way to relax and read some information around your environment and the world. I dont have enough cash surplus to buy the papers but whenever i have i will buy.

I have to be honest on this. I have stopped reading newspapers since some years. I have subscribed to various news channels online and I get my daily news from them. The advantage of getting your news online is that the news are up-to-date. Moreover you will have access to a variety of news. Another good thing is that online news are available for free.

I am reading the online version of the news. Not really to save money but it is more convenient. First, I don't have to buy. Second, no need to open up the large pages. With my smart phone, it is easy to read particularly during my slack time in the office. I am predicting that the online version will be the standard for the news in the near future.

I do check for news online and yahoo is my standard where they keep updating news by the minute so to say. And then there are the tv channels too. But this habit will never die. That early morning ritual that i have been following for years will stay with me. .

No, I don't buy the newspaper anymore. Not for years... I think over 5-6 years at least. It's honestly just a waste of time since the news is now so easily accessible everywhere you turn... on the television, the internet and more. The newspaper is overpriced in my country and nobody buys it anymore except the elderly. I guess they are used to it and they don't really use the internet too much. I simply prefer finding the news on the internet - easy, quick and I can read whatever I want without paying a cent.

Newspaper is better than online news these days because online news or cable is becoming noise, if they don't advertise ads they will repeat the news for more than five times, sometimes the information comes late unlike morning news that is very accurate.

My father still has this custom. To be honest, I have not bought a newspaper for years, because the internet has simply replaced it all for me. A lot of the news that comes out in the papers has been out for about a day or two on the internet. I think the newspaper has become very outdated and few people still buy it. At least here in my country is like this.

We have newspaper in the local language which is what makes us stay relevant with the local stuff. So for that reason I'd say that reading newspaper which is local is a good thing. And I'm surely going to read as much as possible. I think for many among us it could be a good thing to read the news. I don't know how many people prefer to read on the internet. I like to read local news through paper.

We no longer have a daily subscription of the morning paper. But when I eat breakfast at a fastfood, I always request for a newspaper to read. I know I can easily read the news using my smartphone but it's more satisfying to flip the pages of a newspaper.

I also find the writing on newspapers to be more refined and well edited as compared to the articles found in the internet. This makes reading the newspaper a lot better.

We still have this custom, due to my parents, specially on Sundays. But actually, it feels good to have the news on virtual or physical way. We used to get the newspaper to give it another uses, like for cleaning windows and mirrors, cover some storage items or bird cage's floor. Now, with the recycle bin, and to stop unnecessary wasted, we prefer to get the news on the TV or straight from social media.

My parents' house stays that way, too. On Sundays there is the custom of buying newspapers. I think my parents do this because they do not surf the internet. It would really be a lot easier.

Not anymore. I remember how I used to read the newspaper every morning to ensure that I knew what was happening in the United Kingdom and around the world as well. It was also a good thing to read whilst on the train so that the journey wasn't too boring. But nowadays I just use apps to catch up on the news and tend to just go on social media as well. I can't remember the last time I touched a physical newspaper.

Yes! I do! I love doing the crossword puzzle, and I also love the ritual of the paper in general. I think I got into this because of my grandfather, but there is something about your hot coffee, your paper, and your quiet time and thoughts in the morning that is pretty special, if you ask me. I love the tactile experience with the printed word, and there is something about receiving this in the morning which is really cool and affirming.

I never really enjoyed reading print newspaper because I always found this reading mode very annoying (but sometimes, very unformative). When I want to read some news. I prefer to read them on the internet using my laptop or my smartphone because it's more comfortable and faster.

Not a paper per se but I do enjoy starting the day with some news. I usually log on my Facebook account and check the news on a few sites so I can start my day up to date. A good way to help me wake up also. It's a good morning routine

I use to read morning newspaper regularly when I was living in a city. I moved to my farmhouse four years ago. I don't get daily papers here. Therefore, I did not have the option to read a newspaper. These days I rely on the internet for news. I read online newspapers and magazines.

I am in same boat as you thee days. I don't get the newspaper and other things either. That way I have saved a lot of money. And also it has helped me out with focusing on the news sources. You can see that newspaper issues often end up in garbage so I prefer to have the digital news in that case for myself. I filter out the source of news and it works just fine.

I don't - as mentioned in a previous post on a similar topic just a short time ago - I gave up buying newspapers decades ago - as not only are they now almost obsolete where I live - but with news from all corners of the World now being at your fingertips in seconds - I much prefer to read my news online.

As apart from being more convenient - its way better - particularly as - you can at least select the news topics that are of interest to you - rather than have to wade through pages and pages of topics that are of absolutely no interest whatsoever.

Nothing starts the morning off better then the morning paper and a nice cup of coffee. It is a way to get the morning started calmly and enjoyably without rushing around. I enjoy having that little bit of me time before I rush out the door to begin another day of work. I also enjoy starting my Saturday morning with the paper. Newspapers aren't as popular as they one were because so many people read their news online but there is just something about the smell of coffee and the print of the morning paper that makes my mornings complete.

it's been years since I read an actual news paper. I just wake up and see the news on twitter, facebook or any other social media. It's easier, cheaper and you get to avoid all that sensasionalism of some news paper. You get to see the "important" news and the media usually filters everything for you so you don't have to see what you don't want to see.

I have long gone enjoying breakfast with a tabloid or newspaper. These days, I only drink coffee and head up to my small office room. I open my laptop and work. Looks boring but actually, I find these routine enjoyable. I read news online now through websites and social media platforms. At least I am helping save trees.

I must say those were the times that newspaper was fun to read and have fun. But the times have surely changed. And I'd say that people need to work on their skills now a days to make newspaper read with online options. There seems to be lot of feed reading options that one can check out. I have seen those options work for few users.

Can't remember the last time I read a morning newspaper. I usually just scan the news sites on my phone to see what happened overnight while I was asleep. When I was in Junior High School and High School I used to never be without one though. Mostly for sports results and finals from the night before.

Actually, I don't use to read any kind of news, I don't even watch television very often because I'm always busy so, I'm mostly uninformed about everything that has happened in the world, in my country or, even, near of me. Sometimes, social networks help me to keep myself informed but I believe it's not enough.

My parents have their morning newspaper delivered every day and they do read it. I think it is cool because the articles there are better than on news sites but I don't have enough time to read so I wouldn't buy the newspaper. Maybe if I really wanted to but I don't need it. Reading it is enjoyable though.

Reading Newspaper has too a custom in my house because my father has turned the entire house into a shelf and where ever you go around my house you will see a trace of newspaper which will either catch your sight and make you spend time reading it, he also pays for a week history news that is delivered twice a week which I prefer more better that the normal news. Reading has become fun and interesting.

No, I never read the morning newspaper. I have at times look at evening paper but not the morning edition of any papers. I might look at one if I have to be out for breakfast or something but that would be the only time really. It is just one of the things that I might consider doing. I just get most of my news online.

First of all, I never read the morning newspaper daily. I only read the Sunday papers. I did enjoy reading it but I don't miss it now that I no longer subscribe. We used to have a cable TV subscription and to be honest the news channels were more noise than news. I don't get to watch local news anymore because my husband who controls the TV says he's not interested. So every once in a while I like to listen to the PBS Newshour online, and from time to time we search for online news streams via YouTube that provides news from around the world. But most of the new reports are so repetitious though. They're kind of boring.

I haven't read a newspaper in I don't know how many years. Matter of fact all of the newspapers where I live cut the newspaper down to just 3 times a week. Because these days not many people are reading the newspaper because everything is online. If you want to know news about the next town over you can find it online. Heck, you can even find news online about other countries like Japan if you really wanted to.

I have to be honest with you that I've not read the paper newspaper for months now since I could be able to read about it on the internet as well. It's not that it's not my thing anymore, but having access to it on the internet has changed things.

With most of the news online you can see that it's not useful to buy the newspaper anymore. And there seems to be not much usage of the papers either. So on that note you can see that in near future newspapers will surely be out of the way. And we have to understand what may replace them for the better future.

I never really understood why people loved to read the paper as even when I was a kid and there was no internet around, it just seemed to me that it was much more convenient to just watch the news on TV instead of having to read the paper, especially considering that newspapers are huge and so difficult to maneuver, and once you have spread it out you really can't get it back to its original tightly folded form so it ends up being messy. Also the prints always got to my fingers which always annoyed me.

A good newspaper is much like a good book, a needed break from computers - because I get rather sick of them due to my lifestyle. However, though, my family doesn't' subscribe to a newspaper - but I might read one once in a blue moon at a restaurant or library. However, though, I will admit they are becoming less of an influence, but there are still newspapers being delivered as much as in the 80s where I live, so I figure they still have many years on them.

I can't remember when last I purchased a physical newspaper, I obtain all the news I need from the internet. The main advantage of reading the news online (besides the fact that it is free), is the ability to scroll through the rubbish. My country does limited reporting on world events (which I have an interest in), our newspapers seem filled with presidential propaganda.

I used to LOVE my morning paper! Especially Sunday mornings! Now with the internet 24/7 I rarely read newspapers, or magazines for that matter. But I can't lie, I do miss my paper at times. I remember getting the Daily News delivered when I was still in Queens, lol! Good times!

Those were the days! Yes I do miss the morning paper but I can never make up my mind which one to buy. I don't buy newspapers now though. Instead I watch the news 24 channel whenever I want to catch up with it. Otherwise, I have a look at the paper websites for free on the net. It saves paper and money doing it that way.

One question runs through the newsrooms: Will the paper journal survive the advancement of new forms of communication? For the more hurried, the future has arrived. Just count the days. Meanwhile, the "paperworkers" argue that full migration to digital media is not an urgent concern, and that the printed word overpowers the incantation with technology. At stake, the crisis of the newspaper as business and the relevance of journalism in society.

Across the world, publications announce the latest issues and leave a generation of readers to be orphaned. Recently, the American weekly Newsweek announced the end of its printed edition and, on Wednesday (October 31), the newspaper Jornal da Tarde from São Paulo bid farewell to the readers. One of the world's most prestigious prints, the Spanish company El País, dismissed a string of officials and confirmed that it is experiencing a serious financial crisis. The Press Observatory exhibited live on Tuesday (6/11) on TV Brasil discussed the paper's future.

Yes definitely I am enjoying it whenever I have a chance to buy or have it anywhere else. It is a great morning booster for me because it makes me feel more dedicated to wake up early and see the latest news and trends in the market today. It makes me realize on what are really happening to our world from politics and to showbiz as well. Morning news had been a part of my daily lives because these are the things that give me first hand knowledge after I wake up in the morning. It is still very great to have even though that we are now in the modern age of technologies where every information now is possible as long as you have the internet.

I love the news. I generally like to know what's going in my country and the around the world. The physical newspaper is not the way to do this.I get my news from Facebook and Twitter. Physical newspapers are good for local and village news. Trust me in this modern day the are not worth the paper they are printed on. With the internet age they is breaking news every second.A good example is when Robert Mugabe the ex-President of Zimbabwe was forced to peacefully step down. The whole world was tuned and followed the news real time. The news in the newspaper was stale news.

I really enjoy the morning newspaper because I had been adapt to it for a longer period of time already from the time when the technologies are in its first step towards innovation. It really helps me a lot to gather certain facts or data around the world. It makes me realize how the world is really growing from a simple one to a complicated one because of this rapid changes in technology. I would love to have the morning newspaper as often as I could as long I am living and have life.

During these days I still do some morning news paper whenever I have time to do it. I like the fact that I can read all the latest update on the different issues that the world is facing. Morning news paper was one of the great tool for me to enhance my knowledge regarding to some things around us. I know that some of us are really even forget now this morning news paper because of using the internet as a main source of information or even by the watching the television itself.

It’s really important to read the morning newspaper regardless of the version. There is the website of the newspapers that we can get free news if we cannot buy the printed newspaper. That is my morning ritual when I open my computer. After checking on the email and the important matters, I check on the digital version of at least 2 local newspapers just to get a glimpse of what happened around us.

To be honest, I don't think I see these anymore. In my town, I hardly see any newsstand that sells newspaper now. I think they all stay updated on the news by watching news tv channels. I read blogs and news websites because the contents of the newspaper here in my country are mostly on show business. I don't care about those tv actors anyway.

I don't know if it's good news that we don't have to buy the newspaper anymore instead read them online but it will lessen to cut trees because it's now paperless.

Before, but it was years ago then that I have seen my father reading a news paper but now he only read news at the internet. I think technology really strikes hard on people now a days as I have not seen folks use the newspaper years lately. It is sad to think that people use already technology which is somehow we miss the traditional way of living and used things like newspaper.

I basically do not buy newspapers nowadays because I am always online. Online news is always available in several clicks and I think it is more convenient for me. Meanwhile, reading the news is not as enjoyable as before because most of the listed news is about crimes, corrupt and greedy politicians, accidents, effect of global warming and economic crisis of countries around the world.

Reading morning news paper or news paper generally is a great idea to most people who don't have the time to catch up with the normal news on TV set depending on the time it is being displayed in your country and also the expensiveness of news paper these days has made it difficult for people to buy newspaper has they do before.

People no longer spend time reading a whole article on the newspaper because the world is becoming to busy except you can do it on your leisure time, people now prefer to just check the headlines and the rest of the story may be a little understandable.

I actually never read newspaper everyday since I was young, even though my parents subscribed to newspapers daily and my mom always advised me to read the newspapers daily, but I never do so. I just read the newspaper whenever I feel like it as I always find that there are too many negative news written on the newspaper. So, with or without the online news coming up nowadays, I still don't read newspaper very often. My parents still buy and read newspaper daily, i's become a daily habit to them. According to them, they feel really uncomfortable or awkward if they haven't read the newspaper on that day.

There are lesser and lesser newspaper delivery routes nowadays in my neighborhood. To get that nostalgic smell on my fingers, (my father used to read newspapers every morning and I'd ask for the funy pages all the time) I'd have to walk half a mile to the nearest newsstand. I associate the smell and texure of a mornign newspaper with those brief morning moments with my dad. I'd like my children to have that same memory with me, but the only time I get free newspapers is when we check into a hotel. So the new memories I make with my children are us rying to solve the crossword puzzle together. Hope she remembers that when she gets older.

It would be interesting to know who still buys the papers. I have seen the financial records for the papers in my Country, none of them are dong well. The only people I see doing well are the papers who try and attract subscribers online. In my opinion this is the way to go. This is the future for any newspaper that wants to survive. I still read the paper but I read it online. I don't even have to subscribe I get it free from a whats App group.

I don't really enjoy news in general not by the fact that the content is not useful but by the fact that there is so much bad happening in this world that if you read a newspaper you can think of life in a very negative way and I don't wanna be pessimistic in life, I keep my guard in my mind.

In the past I do have a broadsheet subscription but nowadays no one in our area are subscribing anymore. I also think that hone deliveries have stopped years ago. Nowadays if I want to read a broadsheet, I'll just go to a fast-food chain like McDonald's or Jollibee and get one for free. No sense of buying one because they do publish it for free online.
