I read them both online. I try to stay away from siding with each one as I feel they are both useful. What I find very interesting is the comments on the stories. One leans hard left and one leans hard right. How I wish you could just get a story then use your own mind to make up how you feel about it without some personally motivated writer/speaker/etc... telling me how I should think. But I guess this just summed up all media outlets

I don't read either, as the papers and tv news tend to say/print many things without full investigations. I work in law enforcement, and I see this on a regular basis. So, I generally hit a couple of news websites. You can buy a Sunday paper which has both the RJ and Sun combined and see what you think, tho.

I think the john ensign story was pretty well worn down to a nub in both papers equally.
I prefer the RJ's online format over the suns online edition which seems more like a second hand store with burnt offerings scattered about willy nilly.

Sun news articles lasting weeks at a time with no updates and are of little interest to me beyond a quick read, are placed front and center while other more interesting articles pop up for mere minutes and then are taken down, never to be seen again. Others still may last for a few hours or possibly even a days time but they almost never provide updates, and again, they just take them down.

The Sun..

I think having two papers that compete are pretty neat, Living in Albuquerque I used to read the Albuquerque Tribune instead of the Albuquerque Journal, too bad that closed..
