If a nation gets the rulers it deserves – it certainly gets the newspapers it asks for. Today it is not uncommon for people to deplore the lack of taste in modern journalism – and yet to be taking the very newspaper which (theoretically) offends them. Such people should try the Manchester Guardian.
Those who profess principles should at least seek to exercise them. And to change to the Manchester Guardian means no sacrifice, no giving up of anything. Rather is it a gaining.
A month or two of the Manchester Guardian will cure the taste for anything but good taste. You will come to find that the Manchester Guardian has a charm and a wit of its own. You will come to admire its keen, clean writing and reporting. You will be proud to be seen reading and enjoying a newspaper which contrives always to be good, never to be dull.
