Ah Peter: The Guardian is not a tabloid, rather a Lefty broadsheet rag...say no more, eh?

Thank you. A distinction without a difference then.

I guess that means Mr Tompa is under the impression that every single member of the IAPN which he represents, even the European ones, is as far on the political right as he seems to be. Are they? Are none of the British ones Guardian readers?

UPDATE 6th July 2015
Tompa later says "it's not so much a liberal/conservative issue but a media trust issue [...]  In the US, trust in newspapers continues to drop precipitously". Yes, the drop coincides with the lies the Bush regime told the world in 2003 to get the destabilisation of Iraq off to its disastrous and deadly start.

I'm sure Mr Tompa is familiar with The Guardian and that it has rather more substance than a lefty rag. However, it's probably true that very few of its readers go metal detecting. Or own guns. So it can be safely dismissed.

It is difficult from his blogging to get any idea at all of what he is "familiar" with, and when he is expressing a sincere opinion or just what his IAPN sponsors expect him to write as their paid trollbot. Verbal prostitution is what it seems like to me, clacking tongues for hire.
