    None of you have answered my question. Go back to the First Post in my Thread and try to comprehend my words.

    I hear the term "Award-Winning News" every day...haven't you?

    It's some Network or Local news program patting themselves on the back, making "Award-Winning News" a meaningless term.

    Read (on-line) too many to list here. Both sides, from Post and NYT to Drudge and everything in between.. a news junkie.

    Passing on my way of reading at least the lead article from most subscription sites. I use it all the time and link it first on my browser. Free, easy to use, and works on most sites where the teaser first few lines of the article are shown. You'll be able to read that article without links or ads..
    download the free Mercury Reader here. As of now, only works in chrome.

    Lon, "Award -Winning" news are those Network news programs who tout their news coverage as "Award-Winning".

    I don’t think Paul Revere was ever given an award.

    Dunno. Have to ask Hal. Maybe B. Franklin had an award winning newspaper. Hal would know. He reads award winning stuff.

    I’m not even sure if Poor Richards Almanac got an award either but I read it once if that counts.

    You might be able to get it on your iPad, Holly, because there is an app for the Epoch Times in the Apple App Store. The app is free, so I am not sure what more you would get when you buy a subscription for it.
    Here is what the main page of the app looks like.
