Why The Economist is Probably The Best News Magazine in the World

They Tell It Like It Is

The Economist

Although we don’t agree always with what is printed and opined in The Economist, our admiration for its completeness, its literacy and its unfailing ability to explain complicated economic, financial and political issues is unbounded.

As an example of what the magazine is all about, here is postscript from an article on Hungarian/German relations.

CORRECTION: The first version of this post had a rather complicated final paragraph, which confused even its author. This has since been deleted. The change was made on May 22nd.

Compare this with the U. S. newspaper and magazine policy which is to never, ever correct a mistake.  They just don’t care.
