Have you ever studied the history of GW?
Yes, quite so. The media in Poland fascinates me.
They were assigned to operate GW as the voice of the Solidarność oppositon but soon turned it into a comercial corproation.
That was the reality of Poland in 1989-1990. Gazeta Wyborcza could no longer be the voice of the Solidarność opposition, particularly as Solidarność had entered the Government instead. What was known as Solidarność in the Sejm rapidly broke up - and Gazeta Wyborcza took their own path in light of this. No big deal.
They got in on the ground floor, cornered the market and hijacked the newspaper, harnessing it to their KOR-ite agenda.
Remember, Macierewicz was a member of the KOR. Anyway, you do realise that the purpose of newspapers is to operate commercially?
Wałęsa banned them using the Solidarity emblem.
At the time, he was falling out with much of Solidarność as it was. As I recall, at least part of the problem he had with them is that they were in the Mazowiecki camp - who was threatening Walesa's popularity.
That group is known for their shrewdness, craftiness, cleverness or, if you prefer, business acumen.
That's what the people wanted, wasn't it? They wanted a free market...
But the leftist-libertine ideological agenda can hardly be called pro-Polish.
Gazeta Wyborcza is hilariously nationalist at times, but perhaps you can't see this because you're blinded with hatred towards a newspaper that helped to end the previous system.
The examples provided clearly illustrate that fact.
Choosing to present all the facts rather than selectively quoting (like Gazeta Polska and other rags) does not make a newspaper anti-Polish, rather it strengthens Poland. But then again, I guess those who grew up on a steady diet of Trybuna Ludu have problems with differentiating facts from fiction.
