World' best newspapers: a Swiss study

From Reuters: "The Financial Times topped a list of the world's best newspapers, according to a survey of executives, politicians, university lecturers, journalists and advertising professionals conducted by a Swiss-based consultant.

Among 1,000 respondents from 50 countries, 19.4 percent chose the FT as the best paper, according to the survey by Zurich-based Internationale Medienhilfe... The New York Times slipped from first place in the 2003 survey to sixth, its score dropping to 8.1 percent from 21.3 percent. "The results show that the New York Times is suffering because of past scandals, while German-language publications remain highly respected internationally," Internationale Medienhilfe said in a statement.

Asahi Shimbun of Japan and Italy's Corriere della Sera appeared in the top 10 for the first time, in eighth and 10th places, respectively.

Following are the results of the survey. Figures in brackets show 2003 survey results:

1) Financial Times (U.K.) 19.4 (20.7)

2) Wall Street Journal (U.S.) 17.0 (7.5)

3) Frankfurter Allgemeine (Germany) 16.2 (10.9)

4) Le Monde (France) 12.5 (2.1)

5) Neue Zuercher Zeitung (Switzerland) 12.1 (15.0)

6) New York Times (U.S.) 8.1 (21.3)

7) Intl. Herald Tribune (France) 5.2 (11.3)

8) Asahi Shimbun (Japan) 2.6 (0.4)

9) El Pais (Spain) 1.9 (4.8)

10) Corriere della Sera (Italy) 1.3 (0.7)

To Whom It Should Concern:

Today July 27, 2005 I made three follow-up phone calls to the editors of newspapers regarding my four-page letter I had sent them two weeks previously.

The reason for the follow-up phone calls was to show again the importance of the four-page letter and make inquiries why I didn’t receive at least a form letter saying thank you for taking the time to write us about such a serious matter.

The three newspapers I called where:
First: North County Times, (760) 740-5400
Second: Record Searchlight, (530) 225-8233
Third: San Jose Mercury News, (408) 920-8233

After making the above three calls I felt an attitude reflecting a conceited society.

A conceited society because the newspapers wanted me to understand that it’s “not worth” the newspapers expense to answer letters even if the newspaper believes the letters’ subject matter is very serious. I think this conceitedness reflects an American media attitude that says it’s “not worth” writing about starving children in Africa even if America is a self proclaimed Christian operated society.

My answer to newspapers is to stop your crying about subscriptions plummeting and the world should stop crying about Moslems killing those who support the idea of survival of the richest.

LA Times, Jamie Gold, Readers Representative: [email protected]
& C-Span [email protected]
To Whom It SHOULD Concern:

Subject: LA Times again appears to be protecting Cardinal Roger Mahony?

Because of the seriousness of the subject matter I again send letters about child molestation. Remember molestation could mean rape, but without the written documents we “protectors of children” will never know how sick and or evil some of the representatives of the Catholic Church are. Failure to demand laws by politicians for such documents is a sickening disillusionment to us.

This disillusioned sickness can grow in our minds every time we refuse to demand that our politicians investigate and SHOW us the facts, of what sometimes seems to be the fine line between truth and lying.

From the Times Wire Reports, in the very last news article in the Sunday July 10, 2005, LA Times, Page A-31, in the section called “In Brief” listed under INDIANA it reads:
The chairman of the Catholic lay reform group Voice of the Faithful predicted in Indianapolis that the clergy sexual abuse scandal would eventually cost U.S. dioceses $2 billion to $3 billion. Speaking at the first national meeting of the group in three years, David Castaldi urged leaders of local affiliates to press their bishops for better financial reporting as individual dioceses posted large payouts to abuse victims, lawyers and others. Associated Press reported last month that costs to the church so far totaled slightly more than $1 billion for abuse cases.

For the safety of American Children and using the Patriot Act as one of the tools, I request the LA Times seriously have our California politicians make laws that that will force “All Religions” and in particular, the Catholic religion and Cardinal Roger Mahony, to provide a Certified Audit be available to the public showing the financial records. No exceptions.

It’s evil that Catholics are spending Billion(s)of dollars to protect child molesters here in America while millions are starving to death in Africa.

From the Catholic Version of the Bible, ST. Luke, Chapter 16, Verse 15:
“You are they who declare yourselves just in the sight of men, but God knows your heart; for that which is exalted in the sight of men is an abomination before God.”

Great article.
Perhaps YYZ Lifestyle Magazine will make next year's top 10.
YYZ Lifestyle Magazine is a new Toronto-based magazine focusing on positivity and free from political or questionable content.
It's about time, don't you think?

I'll bet the FT folks, rather than celebrating like the rest of their compatriots over getting the 2012 games, are going to work to find out why they dropped 1.3 points overall - and what the WSJ, FA, and Le Monde did to pick up 9.5, 5.3, and 10.4 points each, respectively. These are nervous times in the news biz, and any competitive advantage must be fully understood.

No Guardian! And aren't there any studies which points out the best magazines too, please?
