I’m currently working my way through the BBC’s big ol’ report on impartiality, with the slightly clunky title of From Seesaw To Wagon Wheel.
Seventeen pages in, and a particular phrase caught my eye.
“The Independent has replaced news with attitude on its front page.”
True. And that’s why I don’t buy it any more.
And as for the bloody new-look Independent on Sunday… I despair. I really do.
Damn you, the whole point of a Sunday Paper is to share it with whoever’s in the house. To get a leisurely overview and analysis of the weeks news. Not to graze on quick-bite-nugget-news-snacks. I get those off the Internet already.
Now I’m going to have to start buying the bloody Observer. And I don’t like that. But I don’t like it less than I don’t like the new-look Sindie.
Bastards. You’ve taken away my favourite paper.

The new look is funny as they have made a virtue out of necessity. They had to get rid of loads of staff and can’t afford to be a proper Sunday anymore.
Shorthand news mentality.
So you reckon it was this or close?
That’s so not sexy in a paper.
