    Default Newspaper

    I have a long commute every day and I have been trying various things to relieve the boredom, including using my phone to surf the web (but the signal keeps disappearing), reading a book etc. I think reading a decent newspaper is the key, but which one? I tried the Times, but its a bit to right wing.

    Any suggestions?

    Perhaps you could try a different newspaper everyday for a week or so and then decide which one you like the best and stick with that. Just a suggestion.

    I think I will give it a try, after reading the Times today and giving some racist thug a two page spread, it put me off.

    Wrong!
    You should read a rag that holds the opposite philosophy in order to exercise and stretch your noggin. If you read the guardian, it will only reinforce your already entrenched world view. If you are a left wing, tree hugging, lentil muncher, a beeding heart namby pamby wishy washy airy fairy hand wringing fckwit, you should read the daily mail. Its called balance, ying and yang.
    For example, if you are incredibly clever and witty, you should come here and debate with SasGuru.

    So the right-wing, nazi racists, fascists, thick, bible thumpers corrupt, dumb as feck should watch the bbc and read the Guardian? Rather than watching Sky News and drinking the seed of Murdoch.
