[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Dear Judith Yours is one of many emails I have received for putting down the Mirror! It is a paper of more integrity than any other tabloid and in fact the vast majority of the broadsheets. That said, it is a tabloid and as such strikes a balance between serious news and frivilous articles that are more for entertainment than information. When dealing with a matter as serious as war or sanctions I prefer to go for a serious publication that makes news it's exclusive priority. Although, even amongst the broadsheets I've yet to find one that satisfies me. And as the Mirror has a readership of over 3 million, it's imperative that it voices matters of social justice. So this is my very public and formal swallowing of humble pie: it's snobbish to distance myself from the Mirror: Long Live the Mirror, especially its more noble elements! Best Wishes Mark Sallydean22@aol.com wrote: I am doing an analysis of the news coverage as part of my PhD, and I find the Mirror is generally very fair and unbiased. I don't see why one should apologise for reading the Mirror. I even got the Letter of the Day published a few weeks ago, criticising the push for a renewed war on Iraq! They gave me £25 - so maybe I've been bought! Judith. Mark Sinjakli email: firstname.lastname@example.org --------------------------------- Do You Yahoo!?
