    Have not bought a newspaper local or national for over 10 years, I get all the news I need on line from the main news broadcasting channels and the Flipboard app.

      Those who have no qualms about not buying newspapers obviously don’t regret the approaching death of good investigative journalism, whether at national or local level

        I have chuckled (and winced) at many a headline over the years but one favourite was from a Sun writer (although there was some similarity to another years previously).

        Inverness Caledonian (Caley) Thistle were in the second tier of Scottish football when they thumped the mighty Glasgow Celtic 3-1 in the Scottish Cup. The headline that followed:

        SUPER CALEY GO BALLISTIC, CELTIC ARE ATROCIOUS

        Still a great headline all these years later.

            We still have a newspaper delivered and I much prefer reading the paper with breakfast before anything else, you can move round the parts you want to read easily.

            on a cruise note, one of the perks of the MSC YC is that you get a proper paper delivered daily usually in time to read with a pre breakfast coffee in the top sail lounge.

              I can't do without our daily edition of The Times. I need it for the Super Fiendish Sudoku, and the Samurai on a Saturday! An expensive puzzle as I sometimes don't get around to reading the paper!

              Then of course, there's the Mail Online for my balanced view on life. Just LOVE the comments!

                The Super Fiendish is one of the reasons we get the times (hard copy) also enjoy the Ken Ken, do them in ink to increase the challenge as I do for all but the 3 difficult Killer Sudoku that come out on Wednesday Friday and Saturday.

                I have a book of Killer Samurai for holidays, great way to waste a few hours

                  Never got to grips with the Ken Ken. I graciously leave that for my husband. Glad I'm not the only dope who spend £ for Sudokus.
                  I too am a sad person who buys Killer Samurai books for holidays! Sadly, I never get even near the time allotted on a Saturday. Double it for the Difficults!

                    I agree about the times taken, I wish they would change the layout of the Saturday page as it never folds well when you want to do the various games.

                        Not often. It's time. I do the Polygon and as a logophile, love the Word Watch which I know 50/50. Never too old to learn new words!

                          Bona fide on-line news sites such as the BBC are now finding that entirely false items and photographs / videos are being inserted on their sites by criminal or terrorist parties with the deliberate intention of fuelling hatred, fear and character assassination etc. The lack of proper investigative journalism will add to the fact that, in the future, real factual news will become more and more elusive.
