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.November 12, 2009 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #681614PhyllisMember
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.November 12, 2009 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #681616smartcookieMember

Mishpacha & YatedNovember 12, 2009 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #681619ronrsrMember
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?November 12, 2009 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #681620jphoneMember
None. I read them for the entertainment they provide, not the news they selectively report on.November 12, 2009 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #681622YW Moderator-80Member
just a reminder
If you don’t have anything positive to say about any publication, then don’t say anything please.November 12, 2009 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #681623A600KiloBearParticipant
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.November 12, 2009 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #681624jphoneMember
I get all my news from Yeshiva World News (does chanifa get me anything?).November 13, 2009 5:18 am at 5:18 am #681625JotharMember
Yated, Hamodia, Mishpacha, and of course the frum news blogs like YWN.November 13, 2009 7:27 am at 7:27 am #681626shaatraMember
Community Magazine. (Sephardic)November 13, 2009 8:39 am at 8:39 am #681627williMember
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.November 13, 2009 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #681628sunflowerMember
yated, hamodia, mishpacha and binah! but mishpacha is real good because u can always read their stuff like a month a year later.November 13, 2009 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #681629NY MomMember
Yated – I read almost every week, Mishpacha & Binah every once in a while but like it when I do, and Olomeinu – still love that one!November 13, 2009 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #681636skatesMember
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…November 14, 2009 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #681637PhyllisMember
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!!!November 16, 2009 2:59 am at 2:59 am #681638havesomeseichelMember
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.November 16, 2009 5:05 am at 5:05 am #681639tamazaballMember
yated and binah are good i feeel the mishpacha is too boring.November 17, 2009 3:30 am at 3:30 am #681641potsandpansMember
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!November 17, 2009 5:06 am at 5:06 am #681642shaatraMember
Potsandpans: agreed! I read it every friday night!November 17, 2009 8:41 am at 8:41 am #681643haifagirlParticipant
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).November 17, 2009 10:21 am at 10:21 am #681644Mrs. BeautifulMember
We get the Mishpacha and Bina. I read them cover to cover. I take out the Horizons from the local jewish library.November 18, 2009 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #681645fedex11204Member
NY post best sports coverage in the area and most conservative politicallyNovember 18, 2009 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #681646workingMember
I like the mishpacha and the nachas. The shtern and shpaktiv are also very interesting for those that understand yiddish.November 18, 2009 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #681647RochelimeinuMember
I read the Mishpacha, Binah and Hamodia.
But, I don’t trust any newspaper 😉November 18, 2009 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #681648mazcaMember
YatedNovember 18, 2009 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #681649A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
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.November 18, 2009 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #681650Mezonos MavenMember
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.)November 18, 2009 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm #681651anon for thisParticipant
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.November 18, 2009 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #681652enlightenedjewMember
Wall St Journal, Financial Times, The Economist. All top notch papers/publications with excellent writing.November 19, 2009 12:47 am at 12:47 am #681653anon for thisParticipant
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.

mishpacha and hamodia. mishpacha comes up with such interesting topics for articlesNovember 19, 2009 4:35 am at 4:35 am #681655JotharMember
The NY Post does not belong in a Jewish home unless someone censors it to be borrer ochel mitoch p’soless.November 22, 2009 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #681657ronrsrMember
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.November 22, 2009 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #681658PosterMember

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.March 17, 2010 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #681668tomim tihyeMember
