I have written before about why I have after many years decided to no longer buy a daily newspaper,something once an important part of my daily routine. This article reminds me that I made the correct decision. The Telegraph was once a fine paper....conservative,knowledgeable and of a quality that demanded some thought be put into the reading of its leaders and investigative articles. Now it seems it is content with poor agency supplied articles attacking a fine conservative woman like Sarah Palin, consisting of rehashed libels and unsubstantiated rumours. Why would a paper like the Telegraph do this?...just more kneejerk mindless anti Americanism? Sarah Palin is a person who the old style Telegraph would have supported fully and even if it did not support her it would never have printed such a shabby shameless article but now it subscribes to the further demonisation of this seemingly dangerous woman....how the mighty have fallen.
