How do you know if a newspaper is good? What are the best newspapers in the world? Most of us have opinions on these questions, but few would claim that our views are more than impressionistic and even intuitive. But one man who has publicly attempted to answer both these questions in a systematic way is John Merrill, Professor of Journalism at the Louisianna State University. He has put forward a list of “the world's top 20 newspapers”, accompanied by a detailed account of the grounds for his assessments.
