Mike, what is your favorite newspaper, and why?
I no longer have a favorite newspaper in this country. I do read the New York Times each day, but it's a shell of its former self. Some of the McClatchy papers do a good job and papers like the Sacramento Bee, the Detroit Free Press and St. Petersburg Times used to be excellent local papers. I do like the local paper where I live, the Traverse City Record-Eagle
. But most dailies have been so dumbed down they're pathetic. If you want to read a real paper that respects your intelligence, you have to look to the UK or other European countries.
