For years, my long-suffering and wonderful wife has had to endure repeated monologues from me over breakfast about the state of journalism, how newspapers don't "do" research anymore, now it's all just opinion. And that opinion is inevitably from right-wing hacks like Miranda Devine (shudder) or Gerard Henderson (double shudder).
But, thanks to my iconoclast-loving son, Joe, my wife can now have a relatively peaceful breakfast of pancakes and George Monbiot - a journalist and author with The Guardian in the UK. Joe bought me his book, Bring on the apocalypse: six arguments for Global Justice, a collection of his articles over the past few years. I devoured it in a day. A journalist who backs up opinion with sources - a rare delight.
Don't trust me though - go to his web-site and read his work.
And feel content that you never have to buy the Sydney Morning Herald again!
