Is "newspaper English" a totally different tongue?

There's an excellent article in this week's "The Economist" newspaper (don't ask me why, it calls itself a newspaper, not a magazine) about the problem with understanding the kind of English newspaper writers use.

If you've ever tried to read a newspaper and didn't understand what the writers were trying to say....maybe it's not YOU!
