First I should point out that I hardly read the Spec. I read the Globe every day, the Economist every week, Foreign Affairs fairly often and National Interest from time to time. Read into that what you will.

I did however read the Spec quite often 3-5 days a week for a few weeks prior to the election. Besides that it's utter tripe --and that's being polite--, it had, in my view, terrible coverage of the issues and candidates.

The Spec did run some "get to know your..." bits, but they might as well have asked candidates what their favourite colour was. To be fair, I'm not sure if that is because the calibre of the candidates is piss poor or the Spec is. However, given the quality of writing throughout it could easily have been the Spec's failure.
