Coherence of a Newspaper

Reading a newspaper is like reading a novel whose author has abandoned any thought of a coherent plot.

(Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities, 2006, p. 33)

Of course, if the newspaper you are reading has a coherent plot it doesn’t mean that you are reading a novel, mostly likely propaganda.
