    I Never Read the News...

    Or even watch it. People fill me in about the sad happenings on Earth and that's just how I like it! If I read anything in a paper, it's the Music Section for interviews with bands. That's it.

    Nope, There Are Other Ways

    Nope. Apart from the free ones that are shoved through our letterbox, I don't. I've found that listening to the radio news gives me a general gist of whats going on. I also watch BBC's 6 o'clock news and BBC East Midlands Today. EMT is great for those cute little...

    Budget Blahs

    While I kind of like reading the paper, right now my budget is too snug to afford them.  And really, I can get all the same info online...without needing to kill a tree.

    Practically Never

    If I need something for swatting flies I use the free papers they stick through the door.

    Since I Can Get The News Online

    With the advent of google search and internet news, why would anyone still buy a newspaper? Not only do you not have to re-cycle all that paper, you prevent trees from being cut down. I'm of an older generation, but I can definitely see the advantage in this technology !

    I Don't Want To Know

    I have my hands, head and heart full trying to do what I can to help the people I can reach, let alone worrying about the stuff I can't do anything about.

    British Press

    The Press in the UK are just awful. I got so tired of reading the papers to see a biased view or the exploitation of victims and the creating of a sensationalist culture that I just can't be bothered anymore.  I'd rather see the world for myself to see what's happening...

    Newspapers Are Too Expensive/unreliable

    I used to read the Rocky Mountain News...but when it got canned, all that was left was the Denver Post (I never liked it). Newspapers are way too expensive nowadays. I'll watch the news on TV instead.

    Dang

    My parents do sometimes. But I don't think I've ever bought a newspaper. I just don't feel it's useful to me. I'm not that into news papers.

    News? On Paper?

    No thank you, I like the internet and the printed media can be stupid and wasteful. I read what I like, when I like.

    Pee Sponge?

    I don't really pay too much attention to the news anyway (I know I should -_-;;) and if a story (I hear on the radio or see on TV) catches my eye then I'll probably look it up on the Internet rather than buy a newspaper. I can say I've never bought a newspaper but that doesn...
