Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Question about FT:

ET seems to cite FT a lot.  I've found their website but haven't had the time to immerse myself in it.

Is FT simply part of the Right Wing/Ultrawealthy propaganda machine ala "Fox News"?

If so, what other kind of coverage/tone would you EXPECT from these folks?

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

They are a business newspaper. They provide a LOT of facts and analysis, and reading them in detail leaves you generally pretty well informed. However, their editorial slant, in open and less open ways, is that of the financial world and big business, and reflects the idelogical preferences of that world.

I'll give you one, Spanish version of coverage:  As bad as Fox is, it seems pretty provincial compared to the arrogant, elitist, insidious, venomous spin and writing style in the fool times and the eco-no.  The latter is so trashy in its bias brainwashing that it should be called the eco-no-Enquirer.  They seem worse to me than the WSJurinal and I haven´t read investor´s daily and the others in years.

Migeru´s word comes to mind: they are ´infuriating´.  

Just an opinion.  And I worry about Jerome´s well-being for reading it so much, but I´m glad he keeps us updated.

Hey, there's a sucker born every minute.  If you're too stupid to see through the bullshit, natural selection dictates you take it in the ass.  Go Nature!  Rah!  (Seriously.)
