All the News That’s Fit to Print
Posted on 08/09/2010
Nothing says, “I know what’s going on in the world” more than a person reading the New York Times. This American paper has been around since 1851 and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere.
The New York Times is the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States and is also the third largest overall, just behind the The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. So why read The New York Times? Well, it’s the oldest newspaper out of the three, and it still gives you a taste of all different kinds of news while delivering prestige as you read it. The Wall Street Journal is a business focused paper, while USA Today is an easy-to-read paper that isn’t printed or distributed on the weekends.
The New York Times’ motto is “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” This has been evident with their eight sections that are divided into News, Opinions, Business, Arts, Sciences, Sports, Style, and Features, but they have recently been condensed into News, Opinion, and Features.
If you get tired of the news rather quickly, turn your eyes and the page to the crossword. Gain the respect of your colleagues by finishing The New York Times crossword puzzle. Don’t brush this aside; it can be a daunting task. Work with friends or a significant other next to the fireplace. It might be best to get some help.
If subscribing to The New York Times isn’t feasible for your household, try going to their website to get your fill of their news. It’s not quite the same as holding the physical paper, but it still gets the job done. If you’re a New Yorker where everyone’s reading the Times, go international for some prestige.
