1. Where do you get the majority of your news: from the newspaper, the radio, the television or online? From friends and online - when I'm logging into Yahoo! or other sites.
2. Do you currently have a newspaper subscription that includes an actual paper delivery? No.
3. What is usually the first website you visit in the morning? NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. I like the weather forecasts they provide.
4. Who is your favorite network news anchor? I don't watch or read the news. I haven't the faintest idea who any anchor is. I remember Walter Cronkite, but that was way back when my parents watched the news. Back then, we knew the anchors and it seemed they knew us as well. Every night the mellifluous tones of Mr. Cronkite filled the living room. It was a very different age. But mostly, news is depressing and I like not knowing the sad state of affairs in the world.
5. Who is your least favorite network news anchor? See above, but add tho that anyone who is changing his name to "fit" the local demographic niche.
6. If newspapers converted to web-only sites, eliminating the physical paper, even at newsstands, would this bother you at all? Yes, but I still love books and media to be in print. Life is not the same online - it has its pleasures, but it is meant only to be part of life, not all of life.
