    That Guardian headline is even a bit too Guardian for the Guardian.

    Also, the Irish sun is a rag.

      The Guardian must use a one armed bandit for generating their headlines.

      Oh look a Greenpeace ad. Amnesty International tomorrow. WWF on Monday.

      As for your Sun jibe – I would put to you that writing headlines for the Sun requires a much higher level of language ability.

        Sadly, the Guardian has given up on being a newspaper. And has become an opinionpaper.
        Someone ought to go.

            Im surprised The Telegraph didnt change its name to Le Daily Terrorgraph for the day just to nail home the point,that headline is just awful aswell..

          Totally disagree. It’s one of the most important newspapers today.

          Never understand why Racing Post is up on these. May as well have this weeks cover of Match or Shoot with a picture of Warren Barton on the cover saying who his favourite Spice Girl is.

            You are of course right. It is one of the “most important” newspapers. That still doesn’t stop it from being a formulaic bag of fluff though.

            Its also very sad, because its just about the only “important newspaper”, with a left wing tradition.

      It’s a common idea in US politics and media to write as if for an audience of 14 year olds, so it can be understood by the maximum number of people.

      Once you factor that in, the paper makes much more sense.

      I’m always surprised at the number of people that assume the NY Times is a decent newspaper. It’s a badly written, rather insipid rag.

    I am not sure what to make of the “Al-Qaeda’s revenge” headline, on the Examiner front page.

      Funny thing is I saw Hollywood there too.

      And Harrison Ford came to mind as an American Satirist in Paris, who comes with all the daft over analysing anti Washington expensively educated snob trappings
