Sadly (for an article that lauds the “more accurate and truthful” US media), contains several errors/misjudgements:
“Both The Independent and the London Times have turned to tabloid formats, while the snobbish Guardian is shrinking even smaller”. Er, no. We’re bigger than a tabloid.
“The paper has been technologically adept, even visionary in an industry that, especially in Britain, temperamentally exists in another age.” Hm. I’ve visited about 10 newspapers in the US and I found them to have a much more “old school” attitude to technology than many of those I know in Britain.
“The ‘Berliner’ is what people at The Guardian call this new size—not least because the new presses are German-made.” There is of course no connection between a century-old standard term for this format and the Guardian’s recent choice of press vendor.
But still worth a read.
