I am talking about "San Jose Mercury News".

I think you'd have a tough time calling that an investment expense, especially if you subscribe to other publications that provide the same investment information, e.g. stock quotes.

Also, what about periodical's like Business Week ?

You could probably make a case for this, although I'm not terribly familiar with the magazine. You'll not find bright lines, so take an honest look at what you're using a subscription for, and proceed accordingly. And remember not to get silly or greedy.
