The editorializing shapes the framing of so much of the content in its weekly publication. Instead of articles presenting information, there is endless commentary. And, it has become tedious,.
For instance, in the current edition, with the cover story on prostitution, the second paragraph of "A Personal Choice" opens:
"This newspaper has never found it plausible that all prostitutes are victims. That fiction is becoming harder to sustain as much of the buying and selling of sex moves online." Here you can read the entire commentary.
Sure, we all know that no journalism is totally objective. Just choosing certain subjects to cover and not others demonstrates, well, an opinion on its value. But, there are degrees of objectivity. For The Economist, some of us would prefer more quotes from third parties than the endless drone of the editorial voice throughout the whole enchilada.
Yesterday, I cancelled my subscription to The Economist. That was the second time in a short time. I had cancelled it before but decided to give it a second try. That second time around I became even more frustrated with the smug tone of infallibility.
