I don't know the situation in LA, but Chicago has two major newspapers: the Tribune and the Sun-Times.

Someone gives a flying rat's ass? Chicago can take a major walk for most, if not all, of us.

I am in agreement with Chuck on this one.
Page Three is a feature only of the "Sun" newspaper. The only other UK newspaper which runs pictures of bare-breasted ... its page three over twenty years ago, the mid-market tabloids ("Daily Mail" and "Express") have never run such a thing.

I had always thought that "the kind of a girl that makes the News of the World " described such a model. Was I mistaken?

I would have said the list tended to show the reverse, at least as far as papers are concerned. Consider ... the illiterates don't count as potential readership, but I'm guessing the proportions of those are similar both sides the pond).

More to the point, you should really be counting households, not population. We subscribe to one newspaper (the San Jose Mercury News ), although both Susan and I read it. (Josh only reads the TV listings in the sports section.) We also tend to pick up the free Palo Alto Daily News and skim through the weekly free Mountain View Voice .
Factor in book sales and the conclusion has to be that Americans read so much it's surprising they have time to do anything else.

And don't forget magazines. We currently have subscriptions to, let's see, Time , Newsweek , Reason , The Skeptical Inquirer , Scientific American , Sunset , Consumer Reports , Sports Illustrated , Sports Illustrated for Kids , Games , and probably a few others I'm forgetting.

But there's no denying the fact that I misspoke when I said the Los Angeles Times now belongs to the Chicago Tribune , and that I should have said it belongs to the Tribune Company. That's what Cooper reacted to.
So there was a flying rat's ass to be concerned about.

By the way, for what it's worth, it wasn't clear to me whether "flying rat's ass" referred to the ass of a flying rat or to the flying ass of a rat. Which was it?

Both "Sun" and "News of the World" are Rupert Murdoch's press.

Yes. The News of the World (popularly the "News of the Screws") specialised in stories with a sexual angle, particularly court reports, always presented with an air of shocked disapproval. In the 60s it was the only paper which contained such material. Nothing special in the way of pictures. That may have changed since, but it's a good many years since I've seen a copy. For a long time it was the biggest selling British newspper of any kind.

So can I, because I signed up for a cable service. Most Spaniards and Brits don't, though. They stick to the five or six open-broadcast channels.

Wrong. Most homes in Britain can receive Sky News. Penetration of Sky, either by satellite or cable, is over 80%.

Not sure how this fits in, if at all, but there's been a substantial reduction in newspaper competition over the ... joint enterprise formed by the two competing companies. Bizarre, but it all has to do with newspapers being decreasingly profitable.

The Detroit News (a Gannett newspaper) and The Detroit Free Press (Knight Ridder) are competing newspapers. They are not owned by one company, but have a Joint Operating Agreement. The papers are "combined editions" on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
