"The above contain mainly English language newspapers, although there are a significant number of newspapers in them in other languages. Articles should not be placed in both this category and one of the above, because if they were all added here, this category would be flooded and it could not easily be used to identify English-language newspapers in the rest of the world."

I don't think that's the solution. Not every newspaper in an English-speaking country is an English-speaking newspaper. We need to establish clear subcategories to group English-speaking newspapers of English majority countries. WhisperToMe (talk) 00:53, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

i agree with "whispertome". current method is completely illogical and really achieves nothing of merit. in addition, various countries have multiple languages– official or not– (india) or NO official language (usa). each newspaper needs two classifications: (1) situs of publication (however honed (country or city), and (2) language of publication (regardless of situs). of course many could be fused (similar to "american drama films" which ultimately hits both parent categories of "american films" and "drama films"). --96.232.126.111 (talk) 02:47, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
