British Newspapers
PM Jim Hacker: "Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers: The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country, the Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country, the Times is read by people who actually do run the country, the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country, the Financial Times is read by people who own the country, the Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country and the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is."
Sir Humphrey: "Prime Minister, what about the people who read the Sun?"
Bernard Wooley: "Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits."

An article about the Guardian....
blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/seanthomas/100239508/the-guardian-and-the-murderers-of-the-left-a-love-story/

From the comments section....
Hague's Catamite......
Anyone that is stupid and evil enough to listen to more than one word of the horrendously filthy commie bullshit emanating from the irredeemably rubbish leftist toilet paper that is The Guardian deserves everything they get. Personally, what I think what they deserve is to be locked in a room and machine-gunned extensively until they are reduced to pieces of meat no more than 2 inches cubed. Obviously this will never happen as Britain is packed to the gunwhales with Leftists at the top of the food chain who thrive on the misery their stupid thinking causes - and there is absolutely no one with the sufficient balls to take them on and people like Camoron are keen to emulate them and continue their cultural Marxism programs unabated.

Now it seems they want Carte Blanche to sing "ding dong the witch is dead" while being entirely above criticism themselves in peddling the odious wares of murderous commies.

Even if the Daily Mail did, I personally would have no difficulty in saying that Miliband's father was a bastard and a c**t of the first order. Not only did he OBVIOUSLY hate Britain, he would have done anything to sell Britain out. The hypocrisy is breathtaking, he had many years to move to the Soviet Union before it collapsed with his commie wife and kids - to enjoy the type of society he preached about so dearly. Why didn't he? And why does that surprise no one? These commies are full of talk and no action for the simple reason that they know they are talking rubbish all the time and will do anything to avoid the truth about what they espouse. Doing this makes them both evil, disingenuous and dangerous. To be put down like rabid dogs is a great kindness to them.

Just who reads the Daily Mail? PR Week
Readers of the Daily Mail have a reputation for being judgmental and reactionary. Robert Gray describes how the latest research paints a picture of the Mail reader that is in stark contrast to the common stereotype.

www.modernmidbritain.com/media-centre/whats-been-said-about-midbritain/2007/05/09/just-who-reads-the-daily-mail-pr-week

Notable for having some pretty controversial columnists on its staff; Richard Littlejohn is usually the most commonly cited example. In fact, the Guardian newspaper annually publishes the "Littlejohn Audit", of his references to homosexuality:
Marina Hyde: In the past year's columns, Richard has referred 42 times to gays, 16 times to lesbians, 15 to homosexuals, eight to bisexuals, twice to 'homophobia' and six to being 'homophobic' (note his scornful inverted commas), five times to cottaging, four to 'gay sex in public toilets', three to poofs, twice to lesbianism, and once each to buggery, dykery, and poovery. This amounts to 104 references in 90-odd columns — an impressive increase on his 2003 total of 82 mentions. There is, alas, no space for us to revisit the scientific study which found obsessive homophobes more responsive to gay porn. But Richard, we're begging you: talk to someone.

I have to say that that rant against the Guardian appears to draw attention to his own personal agenda and views about Palestinians and Israel. There must be something seriously wrong with his logic as it's quite obvious that Israel absolutely doesn't stand for peace and that extends beyond their abuses against the Palestinian people. Which can be summed up as an "army of terrorists fighting against a terrorist army". Frankly I fail to see what options the Palestinians have available to them while on the other hand Israel has a plethora of options at hand.

This is just one abuse that the Palestinians have to contend with...

One result...

Israel gave birth to modern terrorism as events such as the bombing of the King David Hotel demonstrates they continue to retain their terrorist roots to this day.

Hypocrisy beyond belief! And the vast majority of people are fully aware of that and what the artificially created state of Israel is and what it represents.

EDIT:
Just think about the potential the drone/uav technology has...some Israeli drone operator can direct the machine anywhere in the world remotely, and if you think we may not one day be their target you would have to be extremely naive. Palestinians are being used as a training and proving ground.

I think it's strange that people aren't willing to think or talk about the various studies on the psychology and biology of Right Wing//Left Wing views, it's a much overlooked subject that sheds light on everything we see played out on these newspapers, blogs and websites you've highlighted Phe...Material reality, everything we see daily seems to contradict the thesis that the Right Left paradigm is "False".
A team of political scientists and neuroscientists has shown that liberals and conservatives use different parts of the brain when they make risky decisions, and these regions can be used to predict which political party a person prefers. The new study suggests that while genetics or parental influence may play a significant role, being a Republican or Democrat changes how the brain functions...
Republicans and Democrats do not differ in the risks they take. However, there were striking differences in the participants' brain activity during the risk-taking task.

....Democrats showed significantly greater activity in the left insula, a region associated with social and self-awareness. Meanwhile Republicans showed significantly greater activity in the right amygdala, a region involved in the body's fight-or-flight system.

Icke talks about this amygdala part of the brain. :tmi:

I never found a perfect newspaper but I like the guardian although these days it is online that I usually get my news. I do think I should run the country.

We're all our own editors nowadays really, we decide what we read, we can take bits from all over or follow writers directly...I have to say I've been very impressed with the Photographs obtained by the Daily Mail, the less words they print the better :)
