I get my news from the Internet because my local paper won't go under

I prefer the Internet for news because you can find longer form features, as newspapers once featured, and you can get news from different areas. I like to check up on the place where I used to live to see that I have made the right choice to move away!

I do worry that I am getting a little too much of the "Daily Me" - not getting news not catered to a liberal white Canadian girl who believes in medicare and free education. But it's better than reading the local newspaper, which hasn't predicted it's imminent death. I wish the Telegraph Journal weren't so stable - that's the double-edged sword of a paper owned by the Irvings. The news is kind of biased and the paper's too stable (talk about a financial backer!) to go under.
