Do you still read local newspapers?

Do you still read local newspapers?
May 15, 2018 11:56pm CST
With the world wide web, we can read or watch any news around the world with just a few clicks. However, there are still companies that are producing newspapers, especially in the countryside. Do you still read local newspapers?

I haven't read the newspaper for years. Our school has ordered a lot of newspapers, Someone sends us newspapers every day. But I can be sure that no one reads these newspapers. I heard that buying these newspapers is the task of the superior, and our school must buy them. This is a waste of money.

Me too. I find reading news online is more efficient and it also saves money instead of buying the newspaper.

In China,People can't publish the newspaper freely,it needs to be censored by communist government.So all of newspapers are all compliments and good things about the communist.There is no truth on the newspaper,they're all lies. and newspaper is under the domination of government,they have no right to supervise or criticize the government,they also have no right to find and speak the truth.If they are dare to criticize the communist without censorship,their newspaper will be shut down by policemen and some of them maybe will go in the jail for fighting against the government and communist. So i never read any newspaper from China.It's all lies except the its date and weather.

Even in our news channels this has expressed by reporters. All newspapers in china are controlled by government. Very sad to hear, there is no freedom of speech.

That's sad to hear. I think even some social media sites are being controlled by the government to show positive things. What are your sources of news now aside from newspapers?

@prakashj256 It also applies here in my country. That's why I am resorting to online news and avoid local news on TV and newspaper.

@Jessabuma I agree. Maybe local newspapers will get obsolete because of the internet. No one will buy them anymore.
