|"The neo-con warmongers’ house journal"|
Founder: John Edward Taylor
Owner: Scott Trust Ltd
Constitutes: Corporate media
The Guardian is a UK newspaper which, in some circles, has a reputation as "left wing" and perhaps even "anti-establishment", although it is a solid defender of a number of key official narratives and "perhaps just as beholden to corporatism and the interests of capital as the next newspaper, regularly espousing the neoliberal “party line” rather the actual views of its left-wing readership." In 2018 Craig Murray termed it "the neo-con warmongers’ house journal".
Deep State control
More perhaps than most other elements of the commercially-controlled media, has reported on matters pertaining to the deep state, such as the heroin smuggling cartel of Hüseyin Baybaşin. But the newspaper's owners Scott Trust Ltd became embedded into the corporate world in 2008, With board members including Catherine Howarth (a WEF/Young Global Leader 2014) and Vivian Schiller (CFR). Jonathan Cook wrote that The Guardian is "incapable of fulfilling its self-declared role as watchdog against abuses by the powerful". In 2017, Craig Murray wrote a short comment on the "Intellectual Dishonesty of the Guardian".

The Guardian has not seriously challenged the 9-11 Official narrative. In 2010 it did mention Francesco Cossiga's claim that 9/11 was widely known to be a joint CIA/Mossad operation, but waited until his obituary to advance the claim that: "He was, of course, being ironic".

Edward Snowden Affair

The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald was reportedly contacted by Edward Snowden seeking to publish the documents he had obtained while working at the NSA. In testimony before the UK Parliament, the editor Alan Rusbridger stated that of the 58,000 files obtained from Edward Snowden only "about 1 percent" had published. He added: "I would not expect us to be publishing a huge amount more."
In 2014, the Guardian fired Nafeez Ahmed, a widely respected critic of the "war on terror". This was interpreted by some as further indication that the paper is a form of controlled opposition, that while it tolerates certain anti-establishment views, it is in fact no more free than other members of the commercially-controlled media to fundamentally challenge official narratives.
In 2015, the Guardian published an article by Kevin McKenna on the Bilderberg group which minimizes their groups importance, beginning “To unravel the numeric code embedded in the name Bilderberg is to find yourself standing at the gateway to hell. By adding together all of the letters according to their position in the alphabet the chilling number 82 reveals itself. Eight plus two equals 10 which was the Number of the Beast when he was a lad. Later this week in a forbidding schloss in the Austrian village of Telfs-Buchen the money-changers and the self-appointed masters of the universe who form the Bilderberg group will meet.” 
6 days after The Telegraph published an article about Richard Dearlove's skepticism about the natural origin of COVID-19, The Guardian published an article by Peter Daszak entitled Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know Covid-19 wasn't created in a lab. This did not mention Daszak's support for gain-of-function research and initially failed to mention his close working relationship with Zhengli Shi and the WIV.

In 2015, a small group of readers tired of the censorship of the "Comment is Free" section, decided to found OffGuardian, their own WWW platform for exchanging such ideas - one that would not be subject to the Guardian's censorship.
In December 2019 The Guardian used the DMCA to request takedown of a parody, resulting in Twitter closing an account. Through the Streisand Effect this lead to many similar pieces, unified by the hashtag TrollingTheGuardian.

Quotes by The Guardian
|Nepal||“500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup 10 years ago, the Guardian can reveal.
The findings, compiled from government sources, mean an average of 12 migrant workers from these five south Asian nations have died each week since the night in December 2010 when the streets of Doha were filled with ecstatic crowds celebrating Qatar’s victory.Data from India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka revealed there were 5,927 deaths of migrant workers in the period 2011–2020. Separately, data from Pakistan’s embassy in Qatar reported a further 824 deaths of Pakistani workers, between 2010 and 2020.”
