You are more than welcome to repost this with the original headline. Or to browse the news soruces yourself, where you'll be able to see everything you want in its pristine unadulterated splendour.

I chose that title because this is, yet again, an article on the Guardian about Germany being evil and wanting to skewer Greece and serve it on a silver plate to greedy bankers. The author makes some good points. But that is esentially what he's saying (and that Germany is a bully). And he may be right, but still, this is the exact same message the Guardian has been repeating over and over since this latest instalment of the Greek debt saga began.

So it is pretty clear that the Guardian wants that narrative to be true. Regardless of whether it is true or not, or of whether they are making good points, it is clear that they really want it to be true. The purpose of this thread is to provide an example of this and to ask: why is that happening? Why are they so intent on shoving it on the readers' faces? (Shocker spoiler: OP is biased.)
