What is your country's best and/or most prestigious newspaper?

Most Canadian newspapers are dominated by left wing nuts so I will refraine from participating.

Would you like the best newspaper or the most prestigious one? Cause that is not necessarily the same paper.

Yep, you are right. I like AD best too. De "Telegrof" is nothing but a sleazy tabloid. :lol:

The Times is probably the most prestigious here.

But they're nearly all crap.

All Dutchies agree :D

I prefer AD too ;) But now with the recent changes, I like it less.

Trouw sucks. Volkskrant is pretty good. NRC Handelsblad too, if you like more economic stuff.

Most prestigious? Het Financieele Dagblad. Seriously.

The Daily Telegraph is absolutely crap :angel: :angel:

Herald Sun in Melbourne is absolutely the best ever especially on Saturday and Sunday too! :p :devil: :) And also The Age is not that bad but i don't really read it!

Yeah I'd say The Times is the most prestigious in the UK (and in my opinion also the best ;) )

But if we were to split by political ideologies then The Guardian would probably be most prestigious to those left-leaning among us, and The Daily Telegraph would more than likely be the paper of choice for those of a more right-wing persuasion (of course that is a 'slight' generalisation about those two papers ;) )

In Scotland, I'd say the best is the The (Glasgow) Herald.

The Scotsman is desperately poor these days :help:, and the rest are adapted English papers which aren't so relevant here, or hideously sleazy tabloids like The Daily Record (:o :tape: )

:lol: at the Australian posters.

The most prestigious newspapers in Australia are, in order:

1. The Financial Review
2. (tie) The Melbourne Age and the Sydney Morning Herald (which are clones of each other)
4. The Australian (which is arguably in fact better than the Age and SMH)
5. The Brisbane Courier Mail
6. The West Australian
7. The Adelaide Advertiser.

The Telegraph is a crappy tabloid. Likewise the Herald Sun.

Actually I haven't seen or heard much about 6. and 7. lately. Maybe they are also crap these days. :shrug:

In Taipei....
United Daily Paper.........used to be the official press for governing party KMT, but it went privatized though still biased towards KMT, now the party holds majority in parliament but lost the presidential election.

National Enquirer--best gossip, best stories; overall, best content
The Globe--best embarassing photos; funny headlines match embarassing photos best; headline writers of The Globe are truly inspired geniuses. Helen is not worthy. :worship:
The Star--Not as accurate as Enquirer; photos and headlines not as good as The Globe, but the content is better than The Globe and physically, it's the best quality as far as color and feel of paper.

If you read "the Triple Crown" like I do every week, you will know all you need to know about what's going on in the world.

the papers of my city, Mar del Plata (La Capital and El Atlántico) are useless even to wrap the eggs

In the UK The Times is the most prestigious & the best. A stunningly high quality publication. Sensible leader articles too, which is nice.

The Telegraph is boring and dripping with Toryism, The Guardian is boring and left-wing.

The Independent is an embarrassment. If independent means ultra-liberal, then yes, its independent. On the bright side, at least the front page raises a chuckle each morning in the train station as I trudge into work.

I'm won't even comment on the tabloids. :tape:

The Daily sport- it contains lots of tits and some bull shit journalism; the paper of the nation.

*JR*

In SUI, the best is Tages-Anzeiger (and its Sunday cousin, SontagsZeitung). The worst is Blick, a trashy tabloid. (Guess which Hounded Hoffy and which kissed his ass, even after his Criminal Conviction).

BTW, Rainer's nutty mother used to storm into the offices of TA Media, parent company of the first 2, demanding that the editors be fired when they'd write about him and his Peppermint Puppet's weird life.

I was in UK before, therefore I understand your comments...

However, I like the Daily Mail because it has interesting stories and excellent columns in it (especially the question and answer section)

The others... rubbish, especially the Sun. The only reason my friends buy it is the...*ahem*... Page 3 girls. They go :eek: looking at them whole day :lol:

The New York Times and Washington Post used to be among the best papers in the USA. Unfortunately, they bought into the reich wingers promotion of Bush's war on Iraq. They also reported "findings" of WMD that existed only in their imaginations and other 'confirmations' of Bush's illusory propaganda. You have to wonder just how much drugs they were taking in order to be so stupid.

As time has gone by, they have now come to the realization that reports of WMD findings were planted by the Drudge Report and other reichsters so that these reports were totally without basis. It was only those truthful revelations, coupled with the vast decline in the present Bush regime's popularity ratings and their drop in circulation, that these newspapers decided that Bush's war was not such a good idea. Thus, they now own up to the fact that their reports were wrong and have undertaken the task of living up to their professional responsibilites in reporting the truth about Bush, about events leading up to the war, and about the dreadful state of affairs in Iraq.

A good move but one that is rather late in the game so that it is likely that these newspapers will never re-capture the great public estimation that they used to have.

However, whenever I get the chance, I read the Bay Guardian for it's independent journalism [however weird the publication is], or the Wall Street Journal, solely for my investment news. :p
