    The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times when I can get a hold of it. I'm a news junky so I'll read just about any non-tabloid newspaper that's in sight. Nothing like a strong cup of coffee on a Sunday morning with any or all of the newspapers above.

    Any rag, that is not chocked to the hilt, with this chav like junk, like stars behaving badly, or shite you would expect from a Jerry Springer show.

    Le Monde (Paris)
    The New York Times (the fluffiest of the bunch)
    The International Herald Tribune (international version of NYTimes, and somehow better written)
    The LA Times

    I have long, leisure-filled mornings with lots of Sumatra bean coffee and a couple (only two croissants).

    When necessary I read the local papers of something I've discovered on-line such as the Seattle Times, Idaho Statesman, Las Vegas Sun, Vancouver Sun, Picayune Times (via NOLA), etc.

    I avoid UK newspapers. All of them, including The Times (which was once The London Times). UK papers are so yellow they stain your hands.

    I'll sometimes buy The Times during the week, but I always buy The Guardian on Saturday. Most of my news comes from the Guardian and BBC's website.

    I haven't read a newspaper for a very long time (except at the airport last November), but when I took the subway to and from work every day I read The Boston Herald in the morning and The Boston Globe over lunch, with The New York Times on the way home. I was also a heavy magazine reader and usually bought 3-10 per week, in addition to subscriptions to Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair.

    When I lived in Paris, I read Libération and occasionally The International Herald Tribune.

    I currently get my news from HuffPo, Talking Points Memo, The Daily Beast, The Daily Dish and Gawker, all of which are visited at least once daily. As these all link (at least occasionally) to other sites and blogs, I certainly enjoy access to much, much more information now than at any other point in my life.

    I'm completely paperless.

    I have the news on as background and google for facts on subjects that take my interest.

    I'm a news hound and every evening after dinner I take a trip around the world in the comfort of my own home by reading:
    The London Times
    The Australian
    Los Angeles Times
    The Toronto Star
