A GUIDE TO U.S. NEWSPAPERS PART 1

1.   The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

 

2.   The New York Times is read by the people who think they run the country.

 

3.   The Washington Post is read by people who think they should run the country.

 

4.   The USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country, but don't really understand the Washington Post.  They do however, like the smog statistics shown in pie charts.

 

5.   The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country, if they could spare the time, and if they didn't have to leave L.A. to do it.

I got the WSJ and USA Today for over 20 years, now I get NYTimes and WaPo. There is no better print news.

Funny ....   Since I didn't see any credit listed, did you come up with this yourself?  If not, who wrote it?

@Lindsays Grandma -

That's funny and pretty right on!

@Tinkrbl44   I wish I had come up with it myself,  however, I'm not talented in that direction.  I had it written in a book where I keep notes and finally got around to posting it.  Sorry I cannot say who wrote it, that info was not included in notes notes.
