Yeah I'd still read their stuff too (Monbiot/Jones). I've been cynical of the Guardian for a while especially after the Nafeez Ahmed thing. Its shit having to be so 'on guard' all the time. Their coverage of almost everything can't be trusted - brexit, trump, corbyn, women's issues, iraq war, israel, economy, syria, energy/climate... When I actually make a list of current affairs issues that they tend to focus on, I struggle to find one that I agree with their line on. You can usually tell when they know they're chatting shit, because comments will be disabled. I still check it as my source of news though, need to stop being so lazy really.
If there was a market for left wing newspapers then you would expect them to be in existence.
Not sure I've understood the comment correctly. Since papers are paid for by advertising, you would expect left wing papers to not be in existence, since big advertisers are generally at odds with leftist politics.
