Shut down the Guardian!

Lifted from that Guardian begging letter.



Really?? I mean, really?? Owen Jones unbiased?? Polly Toynbee unbiased??

Sunderland will win the Champions League before the Guardian can truthfully say it's free from political bias.
Whilst you are absolutely correct.

The difference here :D :D Is that both Toynbee and Jones are '' Opinion piece composers '' who's sole purpose is to get the lefties / luvvies / and other idiots frothing at the mouth and barking at the moon. Not journo's who partake in writing news stories.

Which also make a complete mockery of CP Scott, who said

Comment is free…but facts are sacred
 
Half the people who like to pontificate about "sandal wearing Guardian readers" know very little about that paper. For one thing, it has some of the best coverage about security and conflict issues, one example being its outstanding coverage of the Salisbury novichok attack - one of the errm critics describes it as "the security services' house journal".

It was a former Guardian jouno's Twitter faux pas that led to an ARRSE thread by @alfred_the_great and one of the funniest comments ever posted on ARRSE thanks to @Victorian_Major

As the world speaks out ...
… against police violence and racism, the Guardian stands in solidarity with the struggle for truth, humanity and justice. For decades, we have reported on the brutality that has destroyed the lives of black and minority ethnic citizens around the world. Justice starts with uncovering the truth. That is what we try to do.

It’s not just police violence. The racial inequalities of the coronavirus are clear, as it disproportionately devastates minority communities – from severity of infection and scale of the loss of life, to the catastrophic economic consequences for individuals and businesses.

We are not perfect. But as an open, independent news organisation we are able to adapt and confront prejudice – our own and others’. Our independence means we can challenge the powerful without fear and give a voice to the oppressed and marginalised. Our journalism is free from commercial and political bias, never influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This makes us different.

You’ve read 12 articles in the last six months. And you’re not alone; millions are flocking to the Guardian for quality news every day. We believe everyone deserves access to information that is fact-checked, and analysis that has authority and integrity. That’s why, unlike many others, we made a choice: to keep Guardian reporting open for all, regardless of where you live or what you can afford to pay.

We’re determined to provide journalism that helps each of us better understand the world, and take actions that challenge, unite, and inspire change – in times of crisis and beyond. Our work would not be possible without our readers, who now support our work from 180 countries around the world.

But news organisations are facing an existential threat. With advertising revenues plummeting, the Guardian risks losing a major source of its funding. More than ever before, we’re reliant on financial support from readers to fill the gap. Your support keeps us independent, open, and means we can maintain our high quality reporting – investigating, disentangling and interrogating.

Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable for our future. Support the Guardian from as little as £1 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
 
No, I won't sign that; I'd as well burn my books on Rome. Reading the nonsense it pumps out gives my ventricles a workout over coffee, and I'd have to demand that Socialist Woker and Morning Star are closed down too. And the fascist ARRSE.

(Edit: 6700 and climbing. But will they report on this?)

Agree.

I get the Telegraph several times a week.


If the enemy are fool enough to tell us what they're thinking we're fools to ignore it.

I assume the vile right wing degenerates would feel the same about the Graun, given it's the mouthpiece of a certain subset of lefties.

Well, if the stupid sods offset their lower Vit.D synthesisation rate from being dark-skinned against sunlight with supplement tablets and followed the regulations and stopped congregating in public spaces then they might not suffer a higher infection rate, might they...?

I can't believe that supposedly-educated adults can be that naive and thick so it must be something they're pumping into the air down at the Guardian offices - like unmitigated, blinkered, agenda-driven lefty political bullshit!!

On ROPs
Taxes increased, state control increased, thought crimes invented, immigration up, free speech curtailed, mass rape by Left supporting group covered up, funding of anti-Conservative Quangos & "Charities" massively increased, Left causes funded and legislation they want implemented

Sounds Socialist to me. What Conservative policies/laws did they enact?
Plus defence and police cuts. Foreign aid guaranteed by law.

And both were remainers.


Who needs a socialist party with "conservatives" like Cameron and May?.
 
May I ask why? Their journalism was going downhill several years ago. I doubt it has improved.
It's actually quite hard to get wholly unbiased, truthful, bare-bone News now, but usually, the Times and Telegraph do it fairly well. So does the Guardian, surprisingly (if you want to see 'news reportage really badly done', Morning Star's for you) The leanings of the editor in which news should be reported, and the leanings of the Columnists, are where they differ quite astonishingly. The Guardian is now full-on and unashamedly Black and Gay London; events outside of that ring-road are treated as 'fault of Britain's and the Tory party/fault of Trump/fault of the English three hundred years ago'. The Guardian has a niche which it fills very unprofitably, which is as it should be.

Of course, a great deal of the News emanates from the agencies, which have to have as broad an audience as profits permit, and so tend to be reasonably factual.
 
I don't mind the Guardian - but I don't read the opinion pieces as people like Owen Jones ( and their Daily Mail etc counterparts) grip my sh*t as they all (left/right/whatever) seem totally unyielding in their respective agendas - I pretty much judge people on 'would I be able to have a beer or 5 with them?' and most of the commentators are so stuck up their own arrse that I'd rather glass myself than try to have a convivial chat with them.

Owen Jones & Co are, to me, the equivalent of those on here that post almost solely on the Brexit / politics / immigration threads.

The Telegraph is just centre left now, rather than the XLW of The Guardian
