How do you read your newspaper?

I start at the front page and browse. I look for anything new or interesting. I have a friend who is a reporter for the paper, so I look to see if he made the front page and read his article.

Then I look through the A section which includes national, international, and business news and the editorial pages. I look at the letters to editor to see if I recognize anyone or see a topic that intrigues me. I have several friends who routinely send in letters and get printed once or twice a year each. So it is fun day, if I recognize a name.

I look through the Metro section to see if there is anything I should be aware. I skip the obits.

I look through the Style section. First i look to see if the DC housewives have done anything- cause yaknow I'm a housewife in DC and they do exactly what I do. (blech). I love Carolyn Hax and Ask Amy and I read the comics. I save suduko and the crossword for later.

I don't generally read the sports section. I gaze at the specialty section of the day (Food, housing, Local...) to see if there is anything interesting.

i've never watched that show but if it's what i'm thinking of, i think the mother and her recently divorced daughter were on dr.phil.

I read them online mostly. I don't buy print versions of any newspaper, nor take the free papers they give out at the Metro (the Post Express nor the Examiner). The Baltimore Sun is so badly written, I don't read it at all--online or print. I also read the Quad Cities newspaper and the Pantagraph and occasionally the Chicago Tribune. I also read the CNN webpage every night.

If I'm interested in local news I go to the local news station's website.

She's not talking about watching cable news; she's talking about connecting to a website by means of a URL. You can read anyone's news website on the internet; all you need is the URL. doesn't matter which cable company you have.
