Our tabloids are stuff of legend. And not in a good way. Seriously everywhere ive been i have yet to see anything that comes close to their vindictiveness, ferocity and sheer scope and influence. Normal tabloids jump on trashy celebrity news, these ones jump on trashy celebrity news and everything else. They will write lies, make up reports and do it so blatantly you wonder if they genuinely dont give a flying fuck about the law. One of them (News of the world - The sunday sun basically) is currently being held for breaking privacy laws, they were phone tapping Members of parliament, the royal family etc
Anyway, there are three main Tabloid gods (or thats what i call them). The Sun, the Daily Mail and the Mirror. Of those, reading the Mirror and the Sun is at time a guilty pleasure. Its crash, sensationalist and very very dumbed down, but I can understand reading them it is at times an anecdote to the broadsheets (and less serious and at times very funny). However I do judge people who read the Daily Mail regularly. I make no quams over that fact. If someone is seriously reading the Daily Mail and not to scoff at it or to use it as toilet paper. I judge them.
To sum up the Daily mail, watch This and this (satirical but very close to the truth >.>). Incidentaly, the paper that Vernon Dursley in harry potter reads is the Daily Mail. Pretty much sums up its target audience.
Wow...i killed the thread.
