    Has anyone else seen the article in the Daily Mail about Jo's attitude to fat people in her books?? It's in retaliation to an article she posted on her official site - find it here: http://www.jkrowling.com/textonly/en...view.cfm?id=22.
    I found out through a posting on Mugglenet (www.mugglenet.com) and I just think it's ridiculous. I mean, everyone knows the Daily Mail is rubbish anyway but the article was so badly researched, with character's names spelled wrong, incorrect facts and just ridiculous assumptions.
    It's just a pathetic attempt to sensationalise a perfectly rational and indeed laudable article. Bah to you, daily mail man!!

    The ideal Daily Mail Article will leave you hating someone or something.

    For me the Daily Mail is on a journalistic par with the Sun.

    Actually, I'd venture the 'paper' per se as being its one redeeming attribute: strong, long, and (exceedingly) absorbent; what's not to like?

    I suppose you can say once a paper editor had his/her view, she/he'll never change or they'll lose face....but what was it that made the Daily Mail criticises JK in the first place??

    I've never read the daily mail in my life, and I have to say... after seeing that article I probably never will.

    Mugglenet have written a brilliant article in response to the whole stupid debacle - you can find it here: http://www.mugglenet.com/infosection...n/fatfem.shtml

    And it's a lot better written than the Daily Mail article!

    The Daily Express is the new Daily Mail. IE, a right wing joke of a paper.

    However, at least the Daily Mail sticks to it's guns. The Sun changes it's opinion on a dime, depending on what seems popular with their readers at that point in time.

    You can hardly tell the difference between the Daily Express and the Daily Mail. They're exactly the same.
