Newspapers read

The topic of Newspapers influencing how people voted in the Referendum has come up in the Brexit thread.

Here is a chance to anonymously share what papers you read.
Please limit it to the top 3 if you read more than one.

I was joking about Pravda! Really!

Oh, and you spelt the Guardian correctly - they would not approve!

I know but given some of the comments on the other thread I thought it a good idea to include it. I tried to pick the list from the latest circulation figures.

Re: Newspapers read

Swap it out for The Star then!
Please don’t read anything (!) into that - but yes, I used to look at the pictures when I worked in a large factory following my apprenticeship!

Re: Newspapers read

Struggling to vote in this one, as I stopped buying a daily paper years ago.
I do get The Guardian on Saturday, but rarely get to read it.

On the other hand, I regularly visit both the BBC and Guardian websites for news, and sometimes watch BBC, Sky, and al Jazeera for news on the TV.

Preferred radio tends to be Radio4, though sometimes switch to Radio2, a local commercial station, or Classic FM if I'm driving.

Given my previous comments about media bias, I wonder where that lot leaves me.

I think if you get your news from a newspapers own website then that counts as "reading" that paper. I do the same can't remember the last time I bought an actual newspaper, but I do read their websites.

Perhaps we need another poll to capture what websites people go to for news. Be interesting to come up with a list. I think it might be quite long. I think the article you linked to that talked about the effect of media bias really explains Brexit more than anything else. The income bracket, education and age arguments were not the main drivers.

Re: Newspapers read

Are we really to believe that nobody here reads the Mirror, the Express or the Sun?

I am less surprised about Pravda but Jim probably hasn't voted yet.

No you didn't. The correct spelling is Grauniad.

So who is going to own up to reading the Daily Wail?

That was me I already admitted it. I also read the Guardian to get the alternative view.

Judging by the votes so far I now clearly see where the responses on Brexit are coming from. Yes, I am trying to fight the leave corner but am clearly outnumbered. Perhaps I should just give in and vote to remain

Re: Newspapers read

Don’t think of it as the Leave corner, think of it as the democracy corner - Cameron, sorry, Dave called the referendum, said he’d stick with us through whatever happened, the people, rightly or wrongly voted to leave, so if we value our democracy we should just get on and leave and make a proper job of it, not all the faffing about that’s going on. It’ll be the idiot politicians who screw it up, not the actual thing that was voted for.

Saying that, there’s no excuse to read the Daily Mail, not in a civilized and enlightened society.
