Never give up, never surrender

Well, the heavyweights didn't used to be so bad. I used to read the Guardian until it became totally deranged in the early 2000's then switched to the Telegraph. But they all seem to be the same now. They get fixated on one person or campaign (well usually a few at once) and flog it to death. I'm not going to give instances because that would immediately go political. Nor am I considering just the last few months. I dare say you can all think of many examples over the last 10 years, selected from your own political or other interests.Was ther EVER a time when they published news without a side order of shrieky opinion and BS about 'slebs' ? OK the corvid bit is recent can't deny that.
I don't mind campaigns in the editorial, but for years they have invaded the so-called news items to a ridiculous degree. I wan't a paper giving me a broad coverage of actual factual items. I realise there will always be an editorial slant, for example left in the Grauniad, right in the Torygraph, that can be allowed for. But I don't want rumours, suppositions, character assassinations mixed in with some small snippet of news , it seems half the time made up anyway. . It's childish, really.
