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).
