A thread to chart it's continued fall from "paper of record" to CCHQ press releases but with crosswords.

I'll look back to last November for an example of it's obvious grifting:

Curiously, they never mention that the Oxford vaccine came about due to a sudden and enormous investment from the state and that Oxford insisted to their manufacturing & distribution partner that their vaccine be provided at cost for the reminder of the pandemic.

Nor does The Torygraph examine capitalism's role in perpetuating the virus spread by forcing people to go back to work after testing positive because otherwise they would starve. Or needing to keep schools open despite them being hotbeds of infection because they essentially provide free daycare for children of working parents (though I will concede that remaining isolated and cooped up at home is dreadful for children and their development).

Or that this whole pandemic was started because of appalling conditions of wet markets in China that provide affordable food for a majority of the population allowing the viral particle to jump over into infecting humans.
