The Virginian Pilot - Delivered wrapped in plastic every morning around 0500. Tossed next to my truck door, all I do is pick it up as I get in the truck on the wat to work. Sometimes I'll stop and get a copy of the USA TODAY solely for the sports section.

Since there is only one major newspaper in Atlanta, not much of a choice in terms of papers to subscribe to. There are a number of city and county papers in the Metro Area, but none of them even come close to being anywhere near the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The closest any local paper ever came to challenging the AJC was the Gwinnett Daily News back in the early 1990s. For a time there, the GDN (which was owned by the New York Times), was outselling the Atlanta Journal and Atlanta Constitution (At the time the Constitution was the morning paper, and the Journal was the evening paper; Cox finally merged them into a single daily a few years ago.) in Gwinnett County. The AJC countered by starting a daily Gwinnett Extra section in the AJC (In most Metro counties, the Extra section is a Thursday-only section.), and offered subscriptions that were lower than what the Gwinnett Daily News was offering (I know we would subscribe to the AJC, let that subscription expire, then sign up for the similar deal again.).

I get mine for free.. I read the "Red Eye". For the ones that dont know its the "hip" version of of the chicago tribune. This are its characteristics:
* Designed to be read in 20 minutes (average "L" ride to work)
* Marketed to young proffesionals.
* News are given in a semi-lighthearted fashion.
* Paris Hilton seems to be mentioned everyday.
* Hundreds of Bar ads.
* Used to be $0.25 - now its free!
What other newspaper gives you these pearls of wisdom on your way to work:
"But best of all, at my place I'm more familiar with all the hot spots. I know the good couches to have sex on. I know that my bed's headboard is sturdy. I know which of the two showers gives the most hot water. I don't know crap about her place. At her place I'd be like Lewis and Clark exploring where the sweet sex spots are. My place is already mapped out, baby! " - John Ibrahim Dec 7 05 version of redeye

UK newspapers: given up with the Daily Mail - can't handle the endless gloom and doom; used to read the Independent but that seemed to go way left a couple of years ago; obviously the Sun, but just for the in-depth articles as I like to keep abreast of events...

Partly for *environmental reasons - newspapers are going to last a thousand years in a landfill. Mostly because, by actual measurement of column-inches, the last newspaper I read was well over 75% advertising. That is a lot higher percentage than even Superbowl halftime.
Get my news from internet sources and at least two different TV networks on any given evening.
* I know my having environmental concerns is going to further confuse poor Logan22L who just removed me from his RU list. Well, c'est la vie.

It depends on the city I am living in, as I have lived in 4 over the past 3 years. In Los Angeles, it is the Los Angeles Times, even though it has a right leaning tilt, because I am a big fan of the sports reporting and because it is the only really good news source in the area. In New Orleans, there is only the Times-Picayune and I am not a huge fan, so I stick with the NYT. In Boston, it is the Globe (The Herald is not worth toilet paper). In London I alternated between The Guardian and The Independant.
I also try to read local news papers when traveling, so I like Sueddeutsche Zeitung in Germany. Also, I absolutely love the International Herald Tribune when I can find it.

Either a copy of Tagesspiegel or Süddeutsche Zeitung (see Patrick's post). Tagesspiegel is more or less a local newspaper, Süddeutsche is the German response to the Washington Post.
Sometimes I read the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, which is more conservative. I like it, because it's the only newspaper that only once had a picture on it's frontpage. That was on September 12, 2001.
Often, I only check their websites instead of buying a copy, though.
Then there is Die Zeit. I have been a subscriber for the last 20 years. IMO the best weekly in German language.
