Far too politically biased.
I find the The Guardian newspaper too selective about what news is included so as not to damage the delusion that a liberalized society, with poor standards in every aspect of life, is somehow a better place to live. The comments are also politically angled so as to disguise the truth. Either the reporters and columnists live in ivory towers or they simply refuse to accept the harsh reality of modern society and its declining standards.
For example, it was recently reported that recorded crime is decreasing and it is merely people's perception of crime that is increasing (http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2008/apr/25/ukcrime.police). This is true. However, there was no mention that certain types of crime are no longer recorded, a lot more crime goes unreported and there is a cap on the number of crimes recorded per person.
