The US has one newspaper of Federal record. It’s a historic one, long known in days gone by for its high reporting standards. It’s motto is Democracy Dies in Darkness. Unfortunately it has been driven completely, unequivocally, and I fear irrevocably around the bend by President Donald Trump. It’s become little more than a home for ‘the resistance’. In fact, I can no longer read the Washington Post.
For now I’ll keep my subscription, but only because when it comes to Middle East politics and the involvement of the US military there is no other site (that I’m aware of) that has so many ex-US-military members and ex-DoS employees adding to the conversation in the relevant Comments sections. Their perspective is invaluable to me as an expat. So far, anyway.
It is definitely on my borderline, though, and I may chuck it soon if it doesn’t adopt a less biased, more objective viewpoint very, very soon.
I find most Brit and nearly all Commonwealth newspapers to be similarly biased, possibly worse - although that may no longer be possible. Does anybody have a recommendation for a fair, unbiased replacement for the Washington Post online edition?
