I read the Trib but I also like the Friday AWSJ, too. What can I say, I’m just not the numbers guy everyone makes me out to be.
I used to skip the Tribune – didn’t think it was great value becuase the Journal seemed to offer more. Then I realized that there was more I actually “enjoyed” reading in the Tribune than in the Journal. (though I still subscribe to the Journal online – can’t miss that)
A good friend said to me recently – most of what you extract from the Journal is in the headlines, the rest of it is simply crap. Maybe this is why they have the What’s News section so prominent. And I can read that without buying it.
I normally read the NY Times website – for the sports! I know that’s pathetic given the status of the NYPost, but at least the writing is good. I used to be a subscriber (to the Times, please!) back home. But I’m still a little concerned about it’s recent takeover (practically hostile) of the other half of the tribune from the Washington Post. THen again, I wouldn’t really mind if they DID turn it into the International NY Times :shock:
