Comment: Local newspapers are worth buying (Score 1) 106

I pay for my (weekly) local newspaper. Where my mum lives, they have a weekly print newspaper too, but there it's also available in either a subscription or one-off PDF each week, so sometimes I buy that PDF if there's a story in I want to read, as the local newspapers only sell in a relatively small geographic area. I wish my local paper did PDF too, I'd buy it like that. But, until then, I buy the print version. There's lots to read that you just can't get elsewhere, and the websites for these local papers only report national and regional headlines, they don't put any of the local content on their website at all.
