For interest;

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,670668,00.html

Those who call it a communist paper might like to take note of the award won for the newspaper's front page on 12 September 2001.

I don't think that is too relevant really. Anyone who knows the Gaurdian (sic) knows that it is indeed a top quality newspaper, which does have left leaning opinions. But it is hardly communist, and anyone who has said so has clearly never read it.

Try The Economist. It is a better paper.

Awards have little credibility. Especially when:

The newspaper of the year award was won by the Mirror, whose serious-minded approach to the aftermath of September 11 was applaudedby the judges.



BTW, does that mean that all the other newspapers didn't have a "serious-minded approach" to Septemnber 11th?

I read the newspaper avidly. It is my one form of continuous fiction.

Curious, the article does not say who or what organzation bestowed this honor on the Guardian. That would give a clue as to what the judging criteria may have been.

When you get those who've never read the paper calling it communist, you know these would have been cheerleaders for Senator McCarthy, had they been around in the early 50's.

Yes it does:

"Guardian Unlimited, the Guardian's website, was named internet site of the year, MediaGuardian.co.uk's Dan Milmo won online journalist of the year, the print edition's front page of September 12 was commended, and Emma Brockes was named feature writer of the year at the British Press Awards, sponsored by Press Gazette."

Who cares what the Guardian's ideology is, or is perceived to be- it is a paper which generally has some pretty interesting articles-and its website is pretty impressive too-especially the guide to sources of foreign media.

I have to concur with Stretch 8 though, I regard the Economist as pretty much the best summary of the week's events-lots of interesting, informed articles from around the world. It's firmly secular, pro-capitalism and globalization, and backs up its stance with convincing facts and opinion.

If you subscribe to any paper, better go for the Economist (in my opinion, of course).

Regards (and I don't care a stuff for who owns what, or which paper supports which party).

Quite agree, I'm quite capable of making my own choices on those subjects! Obviously those who criticise papers for their political leanings are incapable of such behaviour!

Absolutely, EAL401. I get the Daily Telegraph, a paper which I find myself in complete opposition with, most of the time. It challenges the mind.

Oh, and the sports coverage is superb. Big grin

Yes, yes, these are all important points. But does it carry "Dilbert"? That's all I read the paper for. Now there is some commentary on life in corporate America (or anywhere else for that matter).
