Many people would say that newspapers are going extinct. Personally, I like a print newspaper for it’s tactile and ritual appeal. Being slightly older than a Millennial, I have a tendency toward print as a media (in addition to digital, of course).
In my household, we opted to only get the Sunday issue of the Star Tribune (Pioneer Press loyalists, commence your chatter). It seems practical because I try to keep most Sunday’s low-key. I am particularly drawn to the Variety and Travel section, the Variety section being my favorite.
The Variety section hosts the crosswords AND the advice column by Carolyn Hax (who I almost always agree with). I also enjoy the Travel section for it’s beautiful photos and the travel tips by Christopher Elliott. I would feel a sense of loss if I wasn’t able to hold a newspaper and to use a pencil to fill in the crosswords.
Most days, I get my news on Twitter. I like being able to choose several sources, and that it keeps me more up to date than waiting until the nightly news or the next day’s newspaper. In this manner, I like being able to choose from a variety of news media.
