Is 'The Nation' still truly independent?

'The Nation' has given itself a makeover. It is now more akin to the UK 'Financial Times'. The new layout is good but......

Yesterday Lydia gave us a gooey description of her relationship with the Shinwatras. Today's front page gives us a run down of Charoen Siriwattanapakadi with certain details missing that TN would once have let the public know about.

It looks to me that the Nation now has a case of 'greng jai' due to all its new sponsors and market, and has given up some of its journalistic integrity and exposure of corruption. That means only Prachatai is left.

Are my fears justified?
