COMMENT POSTED TO A STORY IN THE GUARDIAN

 

Regime uproots 9,000 people near huge telescope hoped to find aliens” says The Guardian’s front page.

Regime?

Maybe it’s just me, but I thought it was “the government of China” at work here?

Uproots?

The word choice betrays bad intent.

A choice of words is everything in politics, as Orwell taught us.

For another nation with a big project, you undoubtedly would have written, “relocates” or “resettles.”

To find aliens?

Please, you don’t invest that kind of money and work in the search for aliens. Radio astronomy has made some of our most important discoveries in space, and the Chinese facility will be a terribly important scientific facility for the whole world.

Shame on you.

Is Rupert Murdoch now a full-time consultant to this supposedly progressive newspaper?

Seems very likely.
