Wish I could read!

    $1.49 for a daily newspaper that has exactly four news stories. And a poll ranking stories over the last year.
    I can't imagine wasting money on a subscription to this, and I'm sorry I did the one-time purchase.

    If you want news find another paper. At 37 cents a story this one isn't worth the money. Yes, it is a perfect solution for people who don't have much time to read the news, because there just isn't much to read here. I can't believe that this is in any way an accurate representation of the print version of the Christian Science Monitor daily newspaper.

    I'd give it zero stars if I could.

    The Daily News briefing is woefully inadequate.  I purchased a single issue to determine the content.  The articles are short summarizations offering little substance.  I expected in depth coverage based upon the reviews I read.  Instead, every article could be read in a minute or less.  Even the editorial offered little insight into the new mortgage rules.  I would not recommend this "review" to anyone really interested in understanding current events.
