After a lifetime of newspaper subscription(s), I went cold turkey last October (2012) and cancelled all printed versions of the so-called news.
I had many reasons, and I won't bore you with them. I realize newspapers have some value. I hate to contribute to their demise. However.....
I haven't missed my morning newspaper one iota. It's actually a relief not to feel I have to get my money's worth out of reading every word. I certainly don't miss the ads or the local sports. Or the "religion" section! Or....well, I said I wouldn't bore you.
I've found that I can get all the necessary news I want via radio, TV, and particularly the internet. Headlines are enough, unless I want more information on a news item that interests me. At my age (70) and retired (from teaching science), I don't feel the necessity to "keep maximally informed". The bare facts suit me fine. Besides, most news is depressing--politics, mass killings, disasters, environmental problems, poverty, etc., etc.
Just leave me alone with my rose colored glasses.
