Default Newspapers - does anyone still get them?

I kind of feel like hubby and I are the only 2 people left on earth who get a hard copy newspaper delivered every day! We get the local AZ Republic and the NYT every day.

Is there anyone out there who does? If not, why not and where do you get your news?

No, we don't... there is nothing worthwhile in our local paper, they spin the truth to where it's not even close to accurate. My dad still gets the paper, so we use his info to read it on line, if we need to know something. Otherwise I get my news from facebook and radio (I'm obligated to say radio because my hubby is in radio.... haha).

We get our local weekly paper. It's good for keeping up with the local political scene and school coverage. Although, the price has doubled over the last year, and I'm not sure if it'll be worth renewing when the time comes.

I have a digital sub to the NY Times, it's easier than print.

We have a digital subscription to The Washington Post. Their introductory deals made the Sunday print edition with the digital subscription cheaper than the digital alone, so that's what we got. We never read the print edition--I bring it into school to use for things like covering the tables for messy projects.

Nope. We read the news on our iPads. We have apps for local and national. AP, CNN, FOX national news. We used to live in the San Francisco bay area so we have a SF app and NY app because we used to live in NJ.

My parents and ILs still get the newspaper.

My husband watches the news in the morning. I get my news from Facebook and Twitter.

I love to read newspapers, so whenever we visit my in laws, I get to bring home some since they get to have newspapers delivered to them daily. I was also thinking of subscribing but since my in laws does and we visit weekly so I just read theirs.

Only when I travel do I read the newspaper. I've not been one to buy a newspaper and I often read my news online.

No newspaper for us. My parents still get the newspaper. My mama would rather cancel the subscription and just read it online.

All these "my parents still get the newspaper" makes me feel old! Of course, I am a parent, but still.

We don't have a newspaper, but if I see one in the library or any other public place, I love to read it.
I do watch the news on television and I read the online paper from time to time.
