“Now a lefty fanzine rather than a newspaper”


written by ColemanBreen78 on 12/06/2020

The Guardian used to be a serious left of centre/liberal newspaper. Better than the red tops and the go-to for non-sensationalist balanced news.
Since however moving to the paid supporter model for funding all that's changed.
Now it's a lefty fanzine. The editorial stance seems to be give the supporters what they want, never write an article that might challenge their hard-left views and pander to them even to the extent of censoring any contrary views in their comments sections.
It really has dropped to red top standards and is 100% tribal. Tories bad, the left good. No attempt to be honest or fact check and very very little real journalism. The 'news' seems to be copy and paste from other news sources and the bulk of the content is un-fact-checked opinion pieces masquerading as news.

Its decline is very very sad. How long it will survive is anybody's guess.
