What can I say...

Simply the best online daily newspaper around now. Not perfect, they have some biases, they can’t stand Jeremy Corbyn or Julian Assange and their biases become apparent after reading it a while. Their headlines can bear hardly any relation to the article below and sometimes incomprehensible sentences require reading and rereading to discover the word left out by mistake or how useful punctuation can be and the damage done to communication now and again by not “ proofreading” sufficiently. These instances are all rare in my experience.

However they research events, investigate corruption and have writers who think about the implications of changes in politics and convey them well and often/usually impartially. Frequently I think The Guardian might even be changing the world significantly for the better.

The have some very funny writers, good cartoonists, top thinkers in the world write articles for them. They have detailed long articles, “Long Reads” of terrific standard. They invest money in what they write and don’t just reprint press releases from parties they like, which seems to get more and more common elsewhere.

A hugely diverse group of journalists write for them and they are financially independent. They appeal to a more left wing readership and as a result don’t need to lie to keep in with rich benefactors, which is a massive advantage as far as reporting the truth is concerned.

How sorry I am that they have so little competition.

Wonderful journalism, terrific perspectives

The G offers an increasingly rare insight into quality perspectives of mainstream issues, as well as sprinklings of the esoteric. Thanks to the great journos and staff that show their dedication, thought and skills in expression. I am pretty often let down by the readers effort at tackling the same issue, with the comments section showing possibly the worst standard of communication of expressed thought/opinion of mainstream publications (Australian, Age). I guess it demonstrates how hard it is to communicate clearly with respect, so a further thank you to the staff. On a purely technical issue, I have tried long and often to log in using my membership across multiple platforms, only to fail. I do get frustrated by constantly being asked to subscribe, when I have. But I accept, it’s a minor issue in the scheme of the issues this world faces.
