Can’t believe they’re going to sack off their Saturday supplements (Weekend, The Guide, Review, Travel - well, I can believe the last one). They’re the reason I/people buy the print edition on Saturdays and one of the things I most look forward to each week ☹️

Even today on the online site they've been pushing a Labour anti-semitism story complete with Corbyn picture as their main piece (I would have thought Tories purging a committee chair might be bigger news tonight).  Fuck that rag.

Context: a draft of a report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission is about to be released and in it, certain MPs will be criticised. Why shouldn't the Guardian report on it since it is a developing story?

That's the newspaper equivalent of a pub closing during the daytime to cut costs, it's terminal at that point and they never last.

Yep. Cummings removes the whip from a fellow far-right leaver cunt because he has to have total control of the party and the country (also getting rid off the person investigating Patel's bullying) and this shit is the headline.

Saw something a while back saying that while the Saturday edition sells the most copies it's also is the least profitable - think at one point they may even have considered it a loss leader because it attracted readers and they made the money back on the other days.

The Guardian is surely still the best source of actual journalism in the UK? If not then who?

If they just concentrated on reportage and sacked off the rancid opinion section I might consider chucking them a few quid.

It's the outrage at the actions of the government we have, and the lack of remorse (or even acceptance) for their role in making sure the only chance we had for change was scuppered, that is so sickening.

Not many pubs with an endowment of a billion quid, however.

The centrist readership can fuck off to the I or the Times while the left readership can finally move past any remaining delusion that the Guardian had any actual interest in getting a politician that's left of Starmer into power.

The Mirror, in its own cruddy way did more to represent the 13 million+ left leaning electorate.

Don’t think the guardian have said anything public ally yet, but several the tweets of several columnists back up the above.

Jonathan Freedland is the worst. Endless bullshit attacking Labour for antisemitism but offer him a prize honouring an antisemitic conspiracy theorist and he leaps on it faster than you can say Maugham. (As well as the Somerset Maugham Award, he also received the Orwell prize, but it seems Orwell's early antisemitism is overlooked by everybody, not just our Jon.)

Problem is, the Guardian's been enthusiastically pushing this poison for years.  Really pushing it.  Even if every one of those cunts gets the chop (which they won't) that decision, that culture, is still at the heart.  Give your money to DoubleDown, Novara or Tribune.  All of them.

They did about ten years ago, part of guardian plus. They saw participation collapse and made them free again.

RIP Weekend Guardian? Fucking Hell, how am I going to get through a Saturday without reading about Tim Dowling's exciting family life, or Hadley Freeman wanking on about what a fucking brilliant film " The Breakfast Club" is, or how she is the bestest at interviewing famous people?

You're right they did. But things are a bit different now. They are also the best in the business and if their site were the only source... It would be worth another go I reckon. Do we know how much they get paid for each one?

Here's yer fucking investigative journalism.

That does seem like more good evidence that were not just seeing inherant bias across the media exposed by genuine left wing politics emerging but an active shift to the right in the last decade.
