Do you read news papers or in real life, or on the internet from other cities or countries,

get comics books, pipe stuff, they also carry news papers from around the world., i would get, news papers from london.

I've stopped buying newspapers. I can't even remember the last time I bought a paper. I get all of my news from the internet or TV.

We get the local paper sometimes, but I read a ton of internet news every day.

I usually read the local paper, and National weekend paper. This is more of habit then anything else because I like to read the paper in bed on Sunday Mornings.
I generally check out the internet news everymorning on my homepage, and watch the National every evening before going to bed.

Not normally. I am really bad at keeping up with the news. I check MSNBC everyday I am at work though.

I watch the news in the morning, while I'm eating my breakfast, and read the news online all day while I'm at work. I'm pretty constantly inundated by it.

It amuses me when people call selling subscriptions to newspapers -- they'll tell me about the great deal they can offer, and I challenge them to beat what I'm currently paying, which is nothing. So far, nobody has offered to pay me to read their newspapers. (And once, I had someone ask me why I didn't want to buy their paper. I told her that her paper A) is completely biased in favour of the Conservative Party, which I do not support; B) is little more than a tabloid; and C) has a Grade Two reading level. She really didn't have anything to say to that. )

I'm a bit of a news junkie. We subscribe to our local daily, a regional Sunday paper, and a national Sunday paper. Plus TIME. We generally watch three German news broadcasts every evening, and check out CNN International, and I get email news from CNN and a German national news service every day, as well as RSS feeds from BBC and the NY Times.
Part of that is curiosity, and part of it is work - I teach German to English translation, and thus have to keep up on current events, and look for appropriate texts to use in class.

I'll read the local town paper (and do what I can of the crossword puzzle). Otherwise I'm on CNN or a local station's web site.

I prefer reading the news I can chose. Sorry didn't mean to rhyme
