Interesting and Substantive Review of World News
on February 13, 2011
I've tried a number of outstanding newspapers on Kindle, but keep returning to the International Herald Tribune (re-named "International New York Times" in October, 2013). It's pricey, but a bit less so than its sister publication, The New York Times. (Many of the articles are the same.) The biggest differences are: The Times focuses more on domestic U.S. news, while the Tribune provides a more global perspective. And, unlike the Times, the Tribune does not publish a Sunday edition. If you tend to read your Kindle evenings, as I do, you'll appreciate that, unlike most U.S. based newspapers, the Tribune is delivered "fresh" in the evening to U.S. subscribers - normally around 8-9 PM EST. This is owing to the time differences between the U.S. and Europe (France) where the paper is based. For U.S. readers, each new edition contains a nice wrap-up of that day's major news events. There are a number of great newspapers available on Kindle. Many cost less while also publishing Sunday editions. So, the choice is not easy. Here's where I think the Tribune enjoys an edge over many competitors: (1) By its extremely well-crafted writing style, (2) Through the comprehensiveness of its articles, (3) And, in the often excellent analysis combined with the reporting - while still maintaining objectivity.
