    All papers are in my opinion misleading. There's not much interesting either that I would read except maybe shopping, notices and job advertisements etc... I don't really care about the reports or stories as that's on BBC parliament live for any thing you would need to get surely all the papers should be banned then as sources it hardly makes sense to ban one and not the others.

    I wonder whether you get the equivalent of rounding errors when you naïvely use Wikipedia which has used the Daily Mail as its source material. How about using Wikipedia which used the Daily Mail which got its information from Breitbart?

    It's the Express that's the real evil in the pack. Disgusting rag that should be exposed for what it is at every opportunity.

    Shame. The Daily Mail's calm and accurate reporting of scientific research is something to be commended.
    If I never decided to stay curled up into a ball hidden in the corner of my room I would have cancer by now.

    That's missing one. (Well not cancer, but certainly causes illness.)

    Pure genius. :rofl:

    "The scaremongering used by the Daily Mail can be very dangerous, leading to prolonged stress and anxiety. These have many known health consequences, but addicts tend to suffer more than most because treatment can be obtained via the NHS, but the NHS is largely staffed by immigrants, so Daily Mail readers tend to stay away."

    Let's hope infowars.com is also on the culling list.

    :lol:

    I particularly love the regular UFO stories, especially the ones about cats being terrified by UFOs over Dorset or Epping or other typical Daily Mail hangouts. They also seem to run the same story about teflon giving you cancer every few months.

    I'm pleased to add, TheStudentRoom isn't banned
    Not as such, but as a forum/blog, it can't be cited as a news source.

    Although it would be fun to see the likes of the beaɾ quoted as a source for articles about theoretical physics, or stuff about honey, or limericks.
