    apart from accurately portraying how I look
    You always beat me to these things :cry:

    In response though… no. I don't take either The Mirror nor The Sun or The Daily Mail seriously

    I had to check that this article wasn't a parody when I saw the headline.
    Don't even like Corbyn's politics but this is just stupid.

    Yes mirror readers obviously.

    I'd bet the vast majority of the rest of us do not though

    The Mirror is one of the better tabloids in my opinion, not by much though.

    The traditional broadsheets, despite their political leanings, are all fairly decent news sources.


    The worst papers in my opinion are the Daily Mail and the Daily Express.

    Being a moderate lefty about most things I'm more receptive to the Mirror's brand of sh*ite than these two, sh*ite it is all the same.

    Of the three tiers of journalism (quality, middle-market - the Daily Mail etc - and tabloids) the Mirror ranks pretty much at the bottom-feeding end of the latter. It's true trash.

    Unfortunately though, it's the future. People are increasingly unwilling to pay for news in the traditional sense. Hardly surprising since rolling 24 hour television news, the BBC News website and more direct access through things like the UK Parliament website exist. But people remain quite keen to pay for strong opinion writing, particularly if it feeds into their deepest prejudices. More than virtually any other mainstream newspaper, the Mirror does just that.

    Really? The mirrors not great, but the Express and The Sun are far worse as is the Mail to a lesser extent.

    I think The Guardia, Times and Telegraph are the best newspapers (oh and the FT)

    I think the mirrors on par with the independent and everything else is garbage.

    The production quality, language and comic-like editorial line of the Mirror is enough for me to stick it at the bottom of the pile. Do a Google image search on their front pages - the Express wouldn't sink to anything like that, and the Sun would only scrape as far down the barrel as that on a really bad day.

    You'd be surprised. For a lot of people, the Mirror/Daily Mail/The Sun is their sole source of information about the world. That's why our country is in the state it's in.
    There's barely anybody this applies to.

    I like the Daily Star. At least it doesn't pretend to be a serious source of information unlike the other three mentioned above.

    Debating which one of them is the best is IMO like trying to decide which one out of three piles of dog sh*t you'd prefer to stand in. I certainly wouldn't group the Independent(a real newspaper) in with those barrel scrapers.
