Help me out here UK?
I've found myself reading The Guardian more and more and was wondering if the UKer's here could give me the US equivalent of these (and yes I realize I am insulting the UK by even suggesting they read US "news".)

DAILY MAIL
DAILY MIRROR
DAILY RECORD
EVENING STANDARD
EXPRESS
GUARDIAN
INDEPENDENT
SUN
TELEGRAPH

I can't give you a US alternative however I can categorize them.

I'm not really after news, but mindless bullshit to entertain me.

DAILY RECORD

I would like to know what is happening in the world.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

Additional to Bemore's post...

All but the Grauniad, The Record and the Independent are right wing (which is left of your democratic party).

RE: Help me out here UK?
I cant help you with a comparison, but just to say that in the USA, there is nothing worth reading/watching, as far as "news" goes.

Everything here has a ulterior motive for what is being said to the pubic, blatant fucking lies is what we get here. Kind of a 'pick your poision, that you agree with' reporting.

Sad state of affairs really.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

RE: Help me out here UK?
Is the Evening Standard a real evening paper (meaning its delivered or available in the evening)?

Are there any evening newspapers left in the US?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

We can break that category down a bit more.
