Published by ... “Oh My God™ the Russians!!” ... but apropos nonetheless:

I spent a week reading The Guardian, so you didn’t have to.
Formerly a socialist-leaning newspaper from provincial Manchester, today’s Guardian is the London-based mouthpiece of Britain’s Oxbridge-educated Liberal elite.   After reading its website for a week, I’m wondering if this is the best all that expensive education can produce?

According to its fans, The Guardian is the world’s leading “progressive” news outlet.   A place full of latter-day Sydney Schanbergs shining light where darkness prevails.   They contend it stands apart from the corporate press, due to being controlled by the Scott Trust, and cite its open-access website as proof of its commitment to freedom of information.   Successful campaigns on gay marriage and transgender rights are also used to illustrate how the paper often captures the zeitgeist.

However, its detractors have a different point of view.   Spewing bile at “Guardianistas” and the “Grauniad” itself, they brand it an issues-led rag which nobody actually reads.   They correctly point out that The Guardian ‘boasts’ the lowest daily sale of any UK national newspaper.   This stood at 156,756 copies in January of this year.   By contrast, the conservative Daily Mail still flogs 1,511,357 a day, on average.   The Mail also trumps The Guardian online, when it comes to popularity.

"Children in America are watching the internet and they want to be masterminds. We're losing a lot of people because of the internet. We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people."
