Guardian weekly

We’ve just started taking the ‘Guardian Weekly.’ Maybe it’s age, but I’d reached a point in viewing the world when I needed paper in my hand rather than words on the screen! Our daily [24/7] interaction with unsettling and complex world-news is very demanding. It raises questions of authority and power but also makes us consider who has a good track-record for truth-telling. It’s about more than a ‘favourite’ paper or news source – though what we read and watch shapes so much. I don’t suggest that truth-telling is easy. But we have to work at recognising those leaders and institutions who make that process more slippery, intractable and damaged. So, the secret is out ‘I’m a Guardian reader’ – ever when it was the Manchester Guardian pre-1959.
