(This was too much fun to not to propagate. My additions in italics.)
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country. (And who don't care for photojournalism.)
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts. They also consume TV news.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country -- if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to leave Southern California to do it.
6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose grandparents used to run the country and did a far superior job of it, thank you very much.
7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country but need the baseball scores.
10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure there is a country ... or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. Unfortunately, there are less and less of these people.
11. The Washington Times is read by people who want their news from Rev. Moon -- and who are embarrassed to admit it.
12. The National Enquirer is read guiltily by most people trapped in line at the grocery store.
13. None of these are read by the guy who is running the country into the ground.
Pass it on. Hat tip to Bump in the Beltway.
