Gruniad Columist cocks up with added casual racism


As an example of how shoddy and badly researched a lot of the leader articles are (post the Berliner changes to the guardian) take a look at todays staggeringly poor effort from Alexander Chancellor .

he says…

So it is with Google, the latest wealth-spewing monster of the internet. Its two young founders – Larry Page and Sergey Brin – are each worth around $20bn, much the same as Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who is ranked by Forbes magazine as the 13th richest person in the world. But unlike him, they don’t have private jets, Rolls-Royces, yachts or any of the other pointless accoutrements of the super-rich. The Prince has just bought a new A389 superjumbo, the world’s biggest passenger aircraft (list price $319m), as his own private plane, which he will convert into a flying luxury hotel and use to carry his fleet of limousines with him around the world. Page and Brin each own nothing more flashy than a modest Toyota Prius, the environmentally virtuous hybrid car.

And not to mention the slant of the piece which is to my eye strongly anti muslim slat that would not be out of place in the Daily Mail.
