Faded glory.

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 the mighty have fallen.

Thudly...I expect those sorts of things in trashy rag magazines, but a newspaper?...tsk tsk. They should be embarrassed. I don't buy the newspaper anymore either. My a few trees and read it on the internet. :)

I too used to buy a newspaper every day (The Mail or The Times)but found that I got too wound up reading them, so now I wind myself up by reading stuff on the internet instead!

It's sad how predictable this has become.
