I subscribed to the Economist for a number of years. The publication has a definite point of view. I don’t find this point of view offensive, the way I find the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Murdoch viscerally offensive. But after a while, I got tired of the Tory worldview and let my subscription lapse. Now I read the New York Times (via an on-line subscription) and political blogs like Talking Points Memo.
