Is the Metro the best paper in Philly?

Me and some friends have been talking about this a lot lately and I thought I’d throw it out there and see what you guys think. I kind of think that The Metro is the best paper in Philly. It’s not where you go for hard hitting news coverage, but it does a much better job of supporting local talent than either the Inky or the Daily News, who are complety convinced that to be worthy of ink you have to be an anchor or reporter on a local news show or have appeared in a reality TV show. Like everybody is just dying to know whether or not Gervase is a good tipper. The Metro, meanwhile, is constantly interviewing local musicians, comedians, and artists, people who are doing exciting things that don’t include appearing on a local network. The City Paper and the Weekly do a good job of this too, but The Metro just seems a little bit more earnest about it. And it’s not as wallowed down in ads as much as those papers are. Anyways, lemme know what you think. I posted a poll to the right.
