Since USAIRWAYS321 already did the US, here's the situation in Slovenia, a brand new EU member:
The #1 paper in terms of circulation is called Slovenske Novice (Slovenian News), but it's a horrible tabloid which no-one takes seriously. It isn't considered serious competition to anyone, at least in terms of quality. AFAIK, the paper doesn't even have a website.
The same publishing group owns the most respected daily in the country, Delo (Labor). This used to be the main newspaper in the Communist era, but has managed to retain its position due to generally good journalism. For some reason, the paper's website is poorly designed, and trails behind its two less influential competitors: http://www.delo.si/
Dnevnik (The Daily) used to focus more on Ljubljana, but has since become a national publication. It is known for its left-of-center perspective. Its website is among the most user-friendly news sites in Slovenia: http://www.dnevnik.si
(Since this is an aviation site, note the Aeroflot ad on the front page -- which is interesting since SU doesn't even fly to LJU, but codeshares with JP).
Vecer (The Evening) is based in Slovenia's second city of Maribor and has a decidedly regional perspective. It is distributed nationally, though, and has a pretty nice website: http://www.vecer.si/
BTW, despite its traditional name, it is a morning newspaper, as are the others.
These four are the only daily newspapers in Slovenia (pop. less than 2 million). In the nineties, three dailies -- the right-wing Slovenec (The Slovene), the leftist Republika (The Republic), and the right-of center Jutranjik (The Morning Paper) -- all failed. Jutranjik didn't even last a month.

Here in Boston the top newspapers by circulation are:
The Boston Metro (http://www.metro.lu). A member of the global network of Metro newpapers started in Sweden, the newspaper was launched in May 2001 and now has the most circulation in the city due to its easy-to-read style, quick, to-the-point news, and, of course, it's free.
Boston Globe (http://www.boston.com). The Boston Globe is one of the most respected newspapers in the US, however its readership is based mainly in New England and doesn't receive much attention elsewhere, especially as New York is so close. It's generally regarded as a left-of-centre newspaper, and is the last remaining, traditional format newspaper in the city. The link leads to the Globe's sister website, which gives information on everything that's happening in the city, as well as global news.
The Boston Herald (http://www.bostonherald.com). The Herald is a tabloid-style newspaper that ranks third in daily circulation. It's a right-of-centre newspaper, evidenced by its op-ed pages, but is, none-the-less, a good source of news locally, nationally, and internationally.
