I grew up reading The New York Times. It's not perfect. They make mistakes, but who doesn't? Even so, no one can dissuade me from my feeling that they are the best newspaper one can read.
Time and again, I have read something in the morning in the Times, only to hear it as a story later in the day on the radio or see that a TV show has picked it up. By the time I get it from them, it's old news, because I read it hours or even days before.
I subscribe to the Times and carry it to work with me on the train, so I can read it as I eat my breakfast in my office. Sometimes, I'll take an AM New York from the guy at the train station. AM New York is a free paper, but it's better than those disgusting tabloid rags, The New York Post and The New York Daily News. Often enough, I'll read an article in AM New York about a story the Times had the day before.
There's no punchline to this post. No special point to make, beyond what I said in the first paragraph. If you don't read the Times, you should. It makes you feel smarter and more in touch with what's going on in the world.
