    It's effectively a woman hating, conservative, poor hating, labour hating, disguised red-top. However it is better than it's slutty sister the Express.

    OMFG DAILY FAIL YOU NOOB WHY POST LIES [/tsr]

    contrary to popular belief here, it is very very illegal to publish totally made up stories in a national newspaper. Yes you might find that the daily mail is written in such a way that it is biased, or it may be selective on what it reports but nothing they actually write is just pulled out of thin air.

    I don't read the daily mail or advocate it, but many other papers (especially the guardian) write equally biased articles but no one really seems to care.
    **** one because you're wrong.

    The Daily Mail, in their ever increasing crusade to rile public opinion against IMMIGRANTS! MUSLIMS!! and BROWN PEOPLE!! used screenshots from a VIDEOGAME and told us all it was an al qaeda created vision of what they would do to the west.

    The Daily Mail literally makes **** up and nobody cares because it's the Daily Mail.

    Also 66% of it is PR or wire copy http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/story.asp?storycode=40123

    Also it's campaigning both for AND against the HPV vaccine in different countries because it has literally 0 reporters who know anything about science http://www.layscience.net/node/507
    it's such a joke.

    If you post a link from the Daily Mail on here, people will refer to it as the Daily Fail, since, as it disagrees with their political viewpoint, they must condemn it at every possibly opportunity.

    In real life, nobody seems to hate the Daily Mail. On here, it's hated. I think it's cos it's seen as a rightwing paper, and TSR is very leftwing. Oh, and the Daily Mail is bizarrely obsessed with Muslims and immigrants.

    That's called the Metro, issued to London and the West Midlands, and I'd say it's quite a good free newspaper, and certainly one of the most partisan. You're amusingly wrong in comparing it to the Daily Mail.
    It's given out all over the country - although there are regional variations.

    It usually speaks the truth, but liberals don't like it, you see, because it conflicts with their opinion.

    The Daily Mail is often regarded as being the red top in monochrome clothing for the lower middle class curtain twitcher. During the week, it's all about prudence, financially, morally and aesthetically (modern art as a whole, and videogames, are generally only there as tools to be scorned or laughed at). But its Sunday supplements, oddly, turn in to an all-out 'loads a money' with £30,000 watches and the like littering its Sunday supplements. It wants to revel in both sides of 'conservatism' and, in doing so, shows that the different meanings of 'conservatism' are a bit of a contradiction. For if to be conservative is to rely on your own individual instinct to thrive as well as you can rather than that of the government then why should an individual love of, say, modern art, be at odds with being a conservative?
    And how is secretly (or openly) desiring £30,000 watches and the people who have them especially prudent?

    My family and I have long bought the Daily Mail, though, for the columnists, some of whom are relatively entertaining in the few topics tackled by tabloid newspapers but some (some of the female columnists) are awfully preoccupied with keeping the names of other women, who they claim not to like, in the newspapers.

    The Daily Mail has started many campaigns (perhaps more than any other paper?) including that for Stephen Lawrence.

    Even if you don't like the Daily Mail at all, though, how can it be worse than the Daily Express modestly titling itself 'The world's greatest newspaper' like some left over from some vain glorious age? The Daily Mail stays away from using some the gutter language adopted by some of the red tops, including the Daily Mirror which should put itself above such things. The Daily Mirror is the newspaper that, a few years ago in its 3AM column, said what a great performance Michael Jackson had put in in a one-off appearance at a concert.
    The following day they said what a shambolic performance he had put in at the same concert- with no mention that their previous day's report can only be accounted for by the fact that they had written it before the concert had even taken place- or before they'd had chance to speak to someone who had been there. But never let the truth get in the way of a 'Wicked Whisper' eh?

    There don't really prioritise their stories really well.

    I remember the Daily Mail front page news was something like - Councils putting spy cameras in wheely bins! OMG(!)

    Where the broadsheets front page news was something more serious - I think it was about the soldiers but it may be wrong.

    Is the daily mail a good news paper or is it fully of rubbish of stories that are not true??
    I'd rather read the Daily Star.

    What's wrong with reading a proper broadsheet like The Indy or The Times?

    I once felt sick and needed somewhere to vomit.

    Luckily someone gave me a copy of the Daily Fail to catch my puke.

    Another time we realized we had run out of toilet paper for the evening and couldn't go buy some for the morning so we found a copy of the Daily Express which made an adequate substitute.

    squish.

    Well, it would be quite boring if all newspapers had the same front page stories. :p:

    And remember, they're trying to sell papers. That's why the Daily Star puts Big Brother as the front page story.
