I can't disagree with a single word here.
I don't know if it was the moving on of Rusbridger, financial pressures or some sort of coup behind the scenes, but the Guardian has become a lot less Guardian in the last year or two.
I did see a pro-Corbyn artocle tere the other day. The funny thing was a comment Below The Line saying it was just some soft soap to make the next attack piece stand out less! When it gets to that level of distrust by your readers (it seemed plausible enough to me) then your readers have all but abandoned you.
Quite why the Guardian thinks there are plenty of customers in the right-wing section of the news reader marketplace, I do not know. Maybe the expansion to the USA is a factor (although Bernie Sanders' popularity would suggest there's a substantial appetite for something left of (genuine) centre there).
It's a bad day when you see Guardian readers looking to the Huffington Post for something resembling decent reporting.
