    I'll take the newspaper any day! I don't trust anything from a computer to be accurate!

    I LOVE real newspapers! Guess that shows my age.

    I love real newspapers, too. Especially Sunday morning in bed - but I couldn't do without my computer.

    Another vote for real papers. Sadly, our local has cut down to just twice a week - Thursday and Sunday.

    I do like reading some online, though. Each day I read the Providence Journal, as it was my paper growing up. I love the NY Times online - great opinion pieces.

    I never read the newspaper. I used to when I was a kid living at home cuz my parents had the paper delivered to them. I as an adult never ever read the newspaper, I listen to the news on TV and check out the news on the computer but don't waste my eyes on reading a newspaper, it's all on TV in the evening anyway.

    I get the NY Times online.. but I often go to Starbucks in the mornings for coffee and to read the "real" NY Times. Every Sunday I go over to my sister's house for coffee and "real" papers, the New York Times and the Detroit Free Press.

    I MUCH prefer paper papers! I guess that dates me...

    My husband reads the Sunday paper. The highlight of the paper for me is the coupons. You can save mega bucks cutting them out with a nice sharp scissors. The rest of the paper is someone elses opinions & they can have them.

    We don't get the newspaper. It's mostly small-town drama and gossip, really. I could care less. My homepage is MSN.com, and a quick scan of that is all the news I need per day.
