I've been wondering lately why we (internet users) still buy newspapers everyday. Newspapers contain both facts and opinions about different events from around the globe. The internet does too. The advantage of the internet is that the news in it isn't biased. All of our daily egyptian newspapers are pro-government and you always find the headline saying something about our president no matter how unimportant it may be to 99% of the public. That really annoys me.

Recently the blog world has covered everything the newspaper does when it comes to reading different opinions and such. Ofcourse the blogs are much more diverse and there are much more writers on the internet than there are on newspapers.

The newspapers have more advertisements, but that's not a reason to buy them daily. Maybe when i'm looking for a new apartment, car or job it would be a good idea to buy the newspaper, or maybe just the ones made exclusively for advertisements like "el waseet".
