The Gleaner is not the arm of any government, corporation, organization, institution, political party or campaign. As any fool can see, the Gleaner speaks for nobody.
The Gleaner publishes comment, satire, ardent pontification and idle speculation in addition to news and facts. Neither objectivity nor balance are priorities. Accuracy and honesty are.
The Gleaner links to and quotes from other sites. That content is not the Gleaner's problem.
