Re: An insider speaks
"I hold The Guardian and the Daily Mail at about the same level in terms of oral frothing"
Guardian articles tend to be researched or obvious opinion pieces. They don't usually lie. Daily Mail articles tend to be propaganda disguised as news and the facts are often just plain wrong (either through poor research or deliberate lying).
By all means compare the Guardian and Telegraph for polarised journalism, but the Mail isn't really on the same spectrum.
"Picking on the DM's like shitting in a barrel full of dead fish, easy enough to do but pointless and unbecoming."
There are still people who believe it's acceptable, even erudite, to read the Daily Mail in public. 4 million people read it. The more public humiliation these people suffer the more likely they are to change their ways. A bit like it's no longer acceptable to keep slaves, beat your wife or drink drive.
