“”The Guardian is such a biased, multi-culti, middle-class, left-wing rag, it could be Swedish.
The Guardian (Sunday edition: The Observer) is a British centre-left newspaper
beloved by organically-grown-muesli-wearing, sandal-hugging, tree-eating, disabled lesbian atheistic feminist social-workers and teachers with one of the most popular websites in the UK.
Surprisingly, it is also home to one of the worst and most draining concentrations of internet stupidity in the world, in the comments section of its 24/7 blogorama, Comment is Free. But, at least it's sort of free, so we can't complain too much.
Its columnists include self-confessed misanthrope Charlie Brooker, a rare breed of politically-aware comedian David Mitchell, and excellent science writer and sceptic Ben Goldacre, who had his legal fees paid by the paper during his lawsuit with woo-peddler Mattias Rath. Ariane Sherine, one of the paper's occasional contributors was responsible for setting up the atheist bus campaign, although since late 2009 she has quit the atheist campaign and gone back to writing and journalism. It also hosts the anti-science and anti-mathematic screeds of Simon Jenkins.
Its science section also features sometime RationalWiki contributor The Lay Scientist (under his IRL name Martin Robbins). During the 2010 general election Robbins wrote analytical commentaries to the major parties' responses to science-related questions asked by Brian Cox, Simon Singh and David Nutt.
 The Grauniad
The papper was once notorios for it's many toyps and other ovbious mistakes, so that Private Eye always refereed to it as "The Grauniad" after it was said to hve msprinted its own name - an epethet which became comon usige. www.grauniad.co.uk redirects to the propper name, and Wikipedia has a similiar redirect.
Lately, the paper has been accused (admittedly by Zionist activists) of supporting anti-Semitic commentators. In the past it has written approvingly of Gilad Atzmon, portraying him as a mere pro-Palestine activist and glossing over his dodgy statements about "the Holocaust religion" and Jewish conspiracies; however, a September 2011 column by Andy Newman finally denounced Atzmon and criticised the British left for ignoring antisemitism. The paper has also written approvingly about Raed Salah, depicting him as an innocent victim of prejudice rather than a purveyor of medieval anti-Jewish sentiment.
In 2011 the site threw open its Comment is free section to members of Occupy St Paul's, an experiment that left both parties with egg on their faces as Freeman on the land garbage got a free airing in a national newspaper.
