I'm fairly politically centrist, and whilst bias is natural to all newspapers to some extent, the Guardian's extreme-left wing is so divorced from reality it's actually ended up "rock bottom wing". Unverified amateurish "Tweets" regularly get passed off as "sources" followed by the inevitable back-tracking later on when many get outed as fake / blatant propaganda.
As for their online edition, I was just banned from their comment section. My "crime"? Posting a picture of a young couple (one Jew & one Muslim) kissing each other holding the sign "Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies" and commenting "We should put these two in charge of the peace process". Within minutes it was banned - because it *DIDN'T* contain enough of the regular mindless "hang all the Jews, long live Hamas, woohoo!" style of hate that the regular "Guardiantas" seem to lap up in droves...
Many other comments by thousands of people regularly go "missing" simply for correcting many articles inaccuracies (both political and technical) - again not for any genuine abuse, but simply out of editorial embarrassment. The level of censorship of even the pettiest things is chronic & wildly out of control, and the overall tone of both articles and commentary regularly sinks to a cesspool of rabid ultra-fringe hate when it involves certain "hot-button" issues.
My first purchase - and my very last...
