Quality is debatable. I was in Warsaw when it got started as a Solidarity daily. (PiSlamic, Delph and little jon only read about it in the self-adulating GW. Where else?) Himself not a writer or editor Wałęsa appointed Mihhnik as edtor in chief, but crafty ol' Adam soon turned it into a Jewish corporation that focused mainly on the so-called "democratic oppositon", mostly KOR-ites, rather than on Solidarity and non-KOR-ite dissdent groups (ROBCiO, KPN, etc.). Things got so bad Wałęsa even had to take away their right to display the Solidarity logo on their front page. (Now they've got a red square there -- far truer to form!) Initially, the Jewish eggheads, familiar mainly with their silk-screened underground manifestos, did not even want a sport section in the paper. But that was the only non-PZPR daily on the market back then and many Poles became accustomed to buying it. The bottom line is that they got an unfair head start on the allegedly "free" media market and that kept them going for years. But always it was the subversive Soros line -- anti-patriotic, anti-national identity, anti-cultrual heritage, anti-family and anti-religion, in other words un-Polish from the word go! One has to hand it to them, they were good at propaganda as all marxists, neo-marxists, crypto-marxists, leftists and socialists are known to be, so they kept dosing out their anti-Polish poison in dribs and drabs trying to convince Poles they were too Catholic, not "progressive" enough, un-European, etc. Since "co Zachód wymyśli Polak polubi", many were taken in, which brings us to another well-known Mickiewiczism: "Cudze chwalicie,własnego nie znacie, sami nie wiecie co posiadacie!" (You praise all things foreign and think they are best, without knowing what you yourselves possess.") But in time even the slick propaganda wore thin and people began seeing through the façade of falsehood and deception. Today the Michnik rag is but a downsized caricature of its former self. And even Soros' hefty cash injection has not helped. The end is near, Adam. Maybe you should consider replacing Honest Matt (Kijowski) at the head of the "back to the trough" movement! Col. Mazguła will surely second the motion.
