Read this

Rarely have I found an article in a newspaper that...
  • Makes points that no other journalist seems to be making
  • Points that are pretty obvious when you think about it
  • Points that I agree with...
... as much as this one by Michael Cross in today's Guardian.

This is what decent journalism is all about. Understanding your subject, not trying for the cheap 'gotcha', offering an insight into the subject for the layman, making a case coherently, doing it consistently without any ulterior motive. And being right.
