1940: First to introduce color.
1963: First to own fleet of aircraft for distribution.
1969: First to adopt facsimile system of page transmission.

The Hindu,apart from the news articles and the great editorials has quality supplementary content as well which is fantastic in terms of the writing and the diverse range of topics covered ,from travel to history to food,cinema ,music and social issues,not the usual page 3 stuff you get in the other newspapers.
The Hindu has some of the best columnists in the country contributing to the writings in the subsections

Hindu is unequivocally the best in the language used and the current affairs coverage provided in our country.

    Right now, the New York Times have an offer for students with a .edu or address where you can get total access to the digital edition on desktop, mobile and tablet for £1/$1/€1 a week. Yes, you read that right – 1 a week. A great investment if you want to support good journalism.

  16. Eddie ågren says:

    "… feed it into a funnel, and optimize it" sound like filtration, as in removing content and making news more "global" yeah, putting information outside of context sound genius for news to do……

  17. Grant Smith says:

    woah is that Bobby Cannavale?

  19. Leo Grey says:

    Sadly, I don't think enough people see the connection between everything that john reports on and the systemic problems of the capitalist system run amok. It's all connected…
    What LastWeekTonight could do is hire or sponsor the journalists that do the hard work, seeing as they are contributing to the show's revenue stream and It would also set an example.
