Presumably because it has the much bigger resources of News International to invest in a greater number of journalists covering hard news (non-lifestyle) around the world? I love the Guardian, but it's never been my first source for breaking news -- its editors seemed to have opted for making comment and opinion its hallmark. The Times is much more about classic reportage, and can draw on all the NI publications to keep adding more facts, more news.Plus, whoever does the story layout for the Times (print version) is brilliant. The stories just flow into one another very easily on the page.
That is true.SP
Agreed. But it was always the FT and the Telegraph that yielded better reportage than the Guardian (pre-Murdoch), even for lefties. I really liked the Sunday Times under Harold Evans.
