Power Line University (2): Who Reads the Papers?

For our second installment of our Power Line University “Yes, Prime Minister” course, let’s enjoy the famous scene “Who reads the papers?”

There’s an American version of this joke: “The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country; the New York Times is read by people who think they ought to run the country; the New York Daily News is read by people who actually do run the country; USA Today is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Wall Street Journal is read by people who own the country; the Los Angeles Times is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country; the New York Post is read by people who think that it is.”

There is, however, no American newspaper equivalent of The Sun. It’s the one thing where Rupert Murdoch has let us down.
