    Covers environmental, international, and agricultural news well.
  • Facts Checked

    By PH Nurse-Educator
    More factual than most other media outlets and local/national/world news sources.
  • Great source of real news

    By butch 333
    I love the in-depth articles.
  • I Want To Pay

    By C4Upilot
    The Guardian is one of my three favorite and most respected news sources. Writing style and research depth make this a must read. The requirement of all financial participation to include “payment automatically renews” prevents me from subscribing. I will happily pay a premium price for an annual subscription that I must actively choose to renew.
  • Nice balance

    By Cheri P.
    I enjoy reading/following the Guardian for its “non-partisan” approach. What I read I’m aware of a certain bent. The Guardian presents a more balanced outlook. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
  • The only way to start your news day

    By Orthogenic School
    The Guardian is the breakfast of media champions. Clear, concise, detailed, well-written news that does not require untangling by reading other sources.
  • No paywall. Honest and diligent leftward leaning news.

    By Benlewiscreative
    They hold themselves to high journalistic standards one of which prevents them from putting up a paywall. Journalism is essential I wish they would allow you to support them on a sliding scale. My current job situation won’t allow it. Only improvement would be a slide towards the center to fill the void in nuanced and democratically available (free) journalism. They are the last ones standing it seems and they lean so left. Download. Read. Support. Knowledge is our lifeblood and without free journalism we all die of ignorance.
  • Reading the Guardian

    By stephenIT
    I don’t who will read this. I find the Guardian’s ability to include reporting, analysis, reflection and comparison within the same piece constantly refreshing. In the US the ‘serious’ papers separate reporting and analysis. The front page carries the facts without comment although the subject matter may imply treason and an existential constructional crisis. You have to wade through to the opinion sections on back page (pace NYT) for any analysis. Even then, it is a week later and, in order not to appear biased, they include pieces from either side of the fence, no matter where in the swamp the fence has been erected. Some stories - the role of Russian and other oligarch money floating the US property and fine art markets - hang around in plain sight for decades without being reported. When the festering sore breaks the surface, it is with with instant shock and horror - but that is another subject.
  • Five-star journalism

    By globalprof
    Understanding the world without the Guardian? Unthinkable.
  • typos in almost every story

    By gil54667
    I can't understand how any writer, let alone any editor, would post, let alone leave posted, any story with a typo. Occasionally typos are so egregious that a sentence will have the opposite meaning intended. It is so distracting that I find myself re-reading sentences and paragraphs to decypher the actual meaning. My own writing is sloppier than it used to be in this post-spelling and grammar era, which is why it is even more important for The Guardian to maintain high standards
