Ask Slashdot: What Good Print Media Is Left? 285 285

guises writes: "A recent story discussing the cover of Byte Magazine reminded me of just how much we've lost with the death of print media. The Internet isn't what took down Byte, but a lot of other really excellent publications have fallen by the wayside as a result of the shift away from the printed page. We're not quite there yet, though. There seem to still be some holdouts, so I'm asking Slashdot: what magazines (or zines, or newsletters, or newspapers) are still hanging around that are worth subscribing to?"

    . . . the last time I checked, the Economist was not a US publication. Does the BBC World News have a, "US centric perspective," too?

    Dono If I believe that.

    The Economist has always had a penchant for saying very little with the largest number of words.

    If you sit down and try to outline one of their major articles, as I recently did, you will see how few points they actually try to make and the inordinate burden they imposed on the reader while making them. And its not like they provide quality supporting documentation to justify their points. Often they simply trout out half truths and over simplifications in point after point of seemingly endless paragraphs of supporting verbiage which provide little enlightenment.

    You know, the organisation that worked with Snowden to reveal government overreach to the world? The one whose journalists just won a Pulitzer?

    The weekly edition [] is delivered worldwide. The condensed format is great for catching up on what's happening beyond the boundaries of Murdouche's empire..

    This kinda sounds like an advertisement, but it's really not. It's just that print news media here in Australia ranges from mediocre to outright political propaganda. The Guardian is my lifeline on sanity in this environment.

If graphics hackers are so smart, why can't they get the bugs out of fresh paint?
