The choices offered in this poll are unclear. I read newspapers both online and actual paper product. Did you mean to not discriminate between these two?

The obvious benefits of reading a newspaper online are (1) the ability to save copies of interesting articles on one's computer for future access, (2) the ability to forward articles of interest to friends and colleagues, and (3) the ability to easily access readers' comments in real time. Given the serious cuts in the newspaper industry, readers' comments often - if not always - add significant insight and even additional facts/history to many published articles.
