Gulf News carries on with its assault on readers

By John Cheeran
Gulf News refuses to learn. Or better still Gulf News revels in its own mediocrity.
Here are two gems from the paper's sport section in the last two days. On July 7, 2008, Gulf News sports editors honoured the BCCI president Sharad Pawar making him a 'double'. (view the image and headline.)
On July 8, 2008, an interesting story on Sri Lankan spinner Ajanatha Mendis was ended abruptly. (view the image and headline).
I could have understood the errors made by the paper but for the boastfulness of the paper and its illiterate editors. In fact I had heard 'quiet' a smart editor there saying 'even New York Times makes mistakes.'
Read Gulf News at your own peril.
