    Or yet another newspaper with its own agenda?

    That used to be a good paper back when I was trading a lot in the commodities industry... not sure of today though. I never got that they were pushing any agenda.

    I never understood why it was salmon colored though although I am sure there is something behind it.

    I was told it was a much better read to your everyday newspaper with interesting subjects on various matters though I can't help but wonder about their agenda. I usually don't pay much attention to news as people like to push their views onto you. Financial Times seems to be owned by Pearson PLC which is a British publishing and education company listed on the London and New York stock exchange. Stock exchange sounds like potential to push views but then again maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

    What paper doesn't have an agenda/slant when it comes to news? I wouldn't pay for any news. I only read news from sources where they're honest about their slant/agenda so I know what to expect.

    Journalists today pretend they're objective when they're not.
