As a non Briton, what is the political stance of the Telegraph? Is it about like American "tabloid" press reporting headlines about the skull of Moses being found in someone's attic? Do they have any journalistic standards, or are they a gossip magazine along the lines of US rags like "People" or "Us?"
Does this paper publish stock quotes and weather forecasts, or just "UFO army seen of Capitol" type headlines?
