    Mishpacha, Binah, Nachas, I dont usually buy newspapers since i get all the news online & these magazines don’t have that many adds to distract me when i’m trying to relax & read.

    We get the Mishapcha as a steady. Besides for that here and there we get the Hamodia. If I want to treat myself before traveling etc. we get the Bina.

    Jerusalem Post, Forward and MAD Magazine.

    I was reading an antisemitic screed the other day, and it said that Jews own all the newspapers, so wouldn’t all newspapers be Jewish newspapers?

    None. I read them for the entertainment they provide, not the news they selectively report on.

    #681622

    just a reminder

    If you don’t have anything positive to say about any publication, then don’t say anything please.

    I read only “Der Shygetz” and “Der Vochedige Velt-Barimte Pashkvilke”.

    Seriously I read only online Jewish news (this site, the other major one and the Chabad sites) as I cannot get any English language publications here. I should read Bakehila online as it is the haimishe publication I trust the most but for some reason reading Ivrit online is uncomfortable for me.

    No time and patience to read news, so I’d rather listen or take a quick glance online. (I Try to stick to jewish / heimish sources). Regarding other features I enjoy the Binah, and often pick up free heimish magazines distributed in local stores for entertainment or light reading – like while traveling.

    im an avid Hamodia reader! i read the magazine part cover to cover and the news part i skim to the interesting stories/articles! I like it soo much because it is very organized and easy to find certain sections!

    news i pick up on YWN;) and other general Jewish sites…

    There are pple that buy mishpacha, bina, hamodia, yated, jewishe press, and sha’ah tova every week. That can run you about 20 bucks!! We are lucky that there is such a large variety of Kosher and entertaining reading material each week!!!

    #681638

    I dont get any. waste of money and time. Dont see the point: full of ads (problematic on shabbos? besides, gives all the wrong ideas), old news that I already read on YWN or VIN or like sources, or “how to lose weight successfully” articles, or others that just gives people wrong thoughts. Like you dont need 6 course meals to be a successful wife, mother, kallah ect. not everyone needs to lose weight. We are pushing our girls to lose weight to an unhealthy end!

    I used to read the Jewish Observer but that stopped. At least that had enlightening articles and editorials. Once in a while I get something for a change if it is on a topic that seems interesting. but overall… nothing really.

    havesomeseichel: hamodia magazine was made specifically for pp who did not want ads in between the articles….they do have one right in the middle of the magazine that can be pulled out…but the rest is ad free and it has very nice stories, dvar torahs, insights, chinuch articles, things u wouldn’t necessarily find in YWN!

    I don’t generally read newspapers except Sha’ar Lamatchil to try and improve my Hebrew. I get most of my news online.

    I spent Shabbos Teshuva at a friend’s house and she had the Jerusalem Post, so I read it. That’s where I discovered Rav Elyashiv had said no Crocs on Yom Kippur. When I got to the family I was spending Yom Kippur with, I asked about what I should wear, and the woman was surprised I had seen it in the JP, because she hadn’t yet seen it in whichever paper she gets (don’t remember if it was Yated or Hamodia).

    #681644

    We get the Mishpacha and Bina. I read them cover to cover. I take out the Horizons from the local jewish library.

    I like the mishpacha and the nachas. The shtern and shpaktiv are also very interesting for those that understand yiddish.

    Yated

    #681649

    Yated for its “Noted & Quoted” because it’s a comprehensive collection of all the nonsense politicians spew.

    News? I get a bit of it here, Arutzsheva, and sometimes the Jewish Press. Eventually I get around to picking up Mishpacha just so I can keep up on the serials that everyone talks about. I used to get Time Magazine, but cancelled for obvious reasons. Once upon a time the general media supported Israel, since that was the “liberal” position. Things surely have changed.

    We used to get the NY Post, but it was too time consuming pulling out inappropriate content on a daily basis.

    #681650

    The NY Post is especially full of pritzus. It isn’t much better in almost any other secular media. One upon a time, the WSJ and Reader’s Digest used to be clean, but even they are not 100% kosher anymore.

    Arutzsheva, YNet, JPost, Haaretz, etc. are approximately 99.9% lies. The NY Times is approximately 99% lies. The Jewish Press has hashkafically inappropriate content in every issue (in fact it constitutes most of the paper.)

    I consider the Wall Street Journal a reliable source of news, and it generally does not have the same issues of inappropriate content as the NY Post does. National and international news stories are covered objectively and in-depth. Coverage of celebrity and sports “news” is almost non-existent, but that’s fine with me.

    #681652

    Wall St Journal, Financial Times, The Economist. All top notch papers/publications with excellent writing.

    enlightenedjew, every time I read the Journal I learn something new, even about stories I thought I understood well. Their coverage of science & medical news is also informative and easy to understand.

    The NY Post does not belong in a Jewish home unless someone censors it to be borrer ochel mitoch p’soless.

    Enlightened, I have to agree with you on the Economist. Compared to the American newsmagazines, such as Time and Newsweek, it is very global, covering most of the world, instead of just most of America. The reporting is top-notch, and there is somewhat less bias than you find in other similar publications.

    Their Science and Obituary section is peerless, and each week there is a full page obituary of someone who changed the world in some way, not always a huge way. I turn to the Obit first, because it is so well done, and almost always fascinating.

    Trust for what?

    For the latest Infosec news I trust SANS, Cryptogram and CERT.

    For Economics I usually turn to J.E.T.

    For the latest about frogs and snakes I’d read Acta Herpetologica.

    And what do you mean by “trust”? I trust some outlets to be honest but unreliable. Others can be trusted to have a consistent editorial bias.
