Daily Mail and Guardian Spat

Post by Thorin on Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:13 pm

The Daily Mail is embroiled in a spat with the Guardian, which it has branded the real “purveyors of hate” in a highly-charged dispute that has delighted the left-leaning newspaper’s staff and supporters. On Wednesday the Mail promoted its attack on the front page - ‘Fake news, the fascist left and the REAL purveyors of hate’ - before devoting an entire page - juxtaposed next to an article detailing the “colourful sex lives of butterflies’ - to defending itself.
The scrap was ignited by a Guardian cartoon printed on Monday that depicted the aftermath of the Finsbury Park mosque attack that saw eleven people injured after a van ploughed into worshippers earlier that morning

Love this tweet from a Jamie McGeever:

The Daily Mail blasts The Guardian for accusing it "without a shred of foundation of fanning the flames of Islamophobia and racism".

Laughing

The Daily Flail is "skating on very thin ice" with their ridiculous deflections and chronic self-denial...

You don't have to live in England to know that the Mail is a propaganda shitfest paper.
Look at my post, above, the headlines of all these papers says it all!
