End of year newspapers are rubbish

Why is it that at the one time of year we actually have time to settle down and read a newspaper, they are filled with endless streams of formulaic tosh?

The Guardian has been an absolute travesty of journalism all this week. Each section takes a theme and elaborates on it ad infinitum until all you want to do is toss the paper on the floor to stop all the hair you've been tearing out from making a mess on the carpet.

I've had quite enough of media review of the year, news review of the year, quiz of the year, politics roundup of the year, dried fruits of the year or any other assemblage of culminatory yawns.

Radio Cymru had the right idea yesterday: they were reviewing 2005. At least that was long ago enough to be just a little bit interesting.
