Both choices because one is closest to my political opinions, and the other the most opposite.

Fave: haven't read many papers but probably the i as it is kind of neutral in politics.

Least favourite: The Daily Express. Not because of political opinions but because there are so many adverts in it, the health stories making the front page a lot of the time and the fact about half of it is in black and white.

Favourite: Guardian/Telegraph for the football coverage, Independent otherwise.
Least Favourite: Daily Mail. The Sun can be quite funny if you don't take it seriously whereas The Daily Mail comes across as evil.

Even if your political views do align with the Mail, how can anyone look past its unsubtle and unpleasant agenda as well as the poor quality? I think the Express is slightly lower quality on average but the Mail has more morally repugnant stories. And its pages actually feel unpleasant to the touch, I don't know if anyone else gets this, but it feels dirty.

Objectively, the Guardian has far better standards of journalism, they aren't malicious and they have headlines that can sometimes be read as neutral. Yes, they have an agenda too and it's far from perfect (and yet, still, it's my favourite of the British dailies, whatever that says about their quality) but it's mostly at least reputable and gives the reader a chance to make up their own mind. Independent used to be good but too much clickbait that has become left-wing nonsense too far gone even for me has soured me on it.

I'd think most of the demographic of this site doesn't really read newspapers regularly though. Most of those impressions is mixed with their online presence and I get my news from a variety of online sources now, mostly not the old newspapers.

I sadly don't read newspapers that much anymore because of the plethora of online resources we have. But I'll always be thankful for them kickstarting my interest in news and journalism over 10 years ago. For my course I do still have a read of them occasionally, for example I had an assignment last year to compare coverage of the Trump/Russia stuff and chose The i and The Sun. That was fun. Anyway, I'd say The i (formerly Independent) would probably be my favourite these days out of the ones I've recently read. That's a compact newspaper so it's printed in a tabloid format but contains broadsheet content. As for actual tabloid newspapers, The Daily Mirror wins for Polly Hudson's cat of the week segment alone tbh. Also I suppose it's a tabloid that aligns with my political beliefs too as they're Labour leaning. My mum has always read The Mirror and still does so that's why I still have a look at it from time to time. Then the worst goes without saying - The Daily Mail. Absolute trash journalism and it saddens me how popular their website is.

Can't say I'm overly familiar with "No" newspaper. Is it broadsheet or tabloid?

But the Daily Mail isn't free wink.gif

1. It is less PC than most other newspapers

2. It is generally Brexit-supporting

3. What you see as 'unsubtle and unpleasant', I regard as straight-talking.

Jesus Christ at the opening post. It's a parody of itself.

Fav: Guardian, Independent...Mirror can be okay for a bit of trash, it's doesn't usually cross the line the way other tabloids tend to do.
Least fav: Daily Mail, The Sun and Telegraph are pure evil. And mostly fake news.

The Daily Mail isn't even worth wiping your arse with. Not only do they of course have hideous views, but it's just shockingly horrific "journalism" with 0 ethics.
