I can't speak for everyone obviously, but i really appreciate features
that have some kinda analysis or investigative focus rather than the
bland knitted together reports from the newswire.
It seems to me that at last we're trying to say something, instead of
just collating reports together and waiting ages to stick them up.
You know i never used to really read the middle column cos it just aped
the reports on the newswire - there was nothing particularly original or
engaging about this.
Long live good independent radical journalism on our middle features column!
