It is not for nothing that Zelo Street describes the Telegraph titles as increasingly desperate and downmarket. Because they are: downmarket because poorly-informed opinion has replaced the good, factual and informed journalism for which the papers were rightly famous, and desperate because there are few avenues the titles’ management will not explore in an effort to keep the money rolling in.had laid out the Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, telling readers “The coronavirus outbreak is the biggest public health emergency in a generation. It calls for dramatic action, at home and abroad, of the kind not normally seen in peacetime. Our goal is clear. The over-riding objective is to protect life”. There was more.
That other papers, and broadcasters, haven’t condemned the Tel just makes it worse.
