Impressed with NY journalism... but not editorially

A quick ditty: While the NY Times cover price continues to rise to ridiculous heights ($4.50 for a Sunday paper? Who am I - Rupert Murdoch?), the NY Post was a mere quarter. Guess which one this grad student picked up for his bus ride home?
Think about it: A daily paper in 2008 for a quarter? Even a stilted, sensationalist one? It's the closest thing I've seen in the U.S. to the British rubbish dailies, which, while rubbish, still keep millions more reading and slightly more informed than TV. So an unexpected bravo to you, Rupert.
