What is disappointing, is that I wouldn't mind at all getting a good paper. As papers go, Pravda on the Pacific is a well laid out newpaper. I marvel at how they can put out a new version of that volume each and every day.
It goes beyond the editorial sections. You can't read an article on page one that doesn't superimpose the gut biases of the reporter over the facts. "In the news today... 'and this means, and it exposes, and it proves...'" Nah, these folks are so far gone they don't even know what it is that they do.
If you confront them they deny it. If you explain what you mean, they can't. I've called in and complained, and the person said, "Well, you've got a point." Yes I (we) do.
