Visits the Guardian, is not impressed:
The Guardian brethren were extremely polite, but I must confess that they made only an indifferent impression on me. John Owens seemed to believe that they were masters of journalism, but I dissented sharply…the truth is that they got out a very poor paper. There was very little spot news in it and most of the so-called correspondence was so obviously biased that it was of little value. They asked me to write a piece for the Guardian myself and I had to comply, but the job went against the grain and I found it difficult.From Thirty Five Years of Newspaper Work and written circa 1942.
