This posts comes courtesy of a couple of gentle digs about a newspaper I tweeted I was reading…
I think it is important to begin by saying that I do not buy a daily newspaper. But I do read the online content of elements of the British press, on a daily basis.
So on a gloriously warm and sunny day when I tweeted, ‘Roadside cafe – fried egg sandwich, mug of tea, borrowed copy of The Sun. Bliss :)’, I got a little bit of stick because I was reading the tabloid The Sun.
But it was, sadly, the only newspaper that the aforementioned roadside cafe had on offer. So what is one to do?
Anyway, the two bits of criticism gave me a little mental prod and I’ve spent some time since then reviewing what newspapers (and/or their online content) I read. And here’s the list of daily visits:
- The Daily Mail
- The Daily Telegraph
- The Guardian
- The Independent
- The Times
So no The Sun. Also, you’ll notice, no Mirror or Express. Except, of course, if I have stopped at a roadside cafe and they’re all that’s available to me.
But if you are what you read, I can’t help wondering what that list makes me?
Anyway, in other news, here’s a very short video of Tom being schooled yesterday:
