Be aware that it means it'll be that little bit harder to work out the bias of the writer. It's always there.

Also, don't use it to improve your English skills.

I don't know why, but I've always preferred the Times.

Does that make me a bad person?

The Independent is far too bland and boring. I'm a Guardian man myself.

We had pizza for dinner last night. I had canadian bacon, pineapple, and red onion on it. It was excellent.

My girlfriend doesn't eat pork, so that severely limits our choice of pizza.
