    The DAILY MAIL U.K. news source

    I wanted to find out what exactly was wrong about this new2s source that our Brits despise and complain endlessly about...the one that appears to report on crimes that others ignore. Is it some bastion of racism? An anti-p.c. protest paper? Do they ever report on news other than race issues?

    What I found was worse than I suspected...they don't focus on race issues at all, they simply report the news. Here are basic page captures, in real time, of the top ten editorials and the readers forum page 1 and 2 from 8:20 P.M. PST. let's see what we can learn:


    I admit this first story is a bit conspicuous, focusing as it does on the writers concern for one of them 'ferreners'

    The release of Munir Hussain is a cause for muted celebration. But the injustice of this case rumbles on. Mr Hussain's brother Tokeer is still in jail while their 'victim' was freed to commit more crimes.

    Lord Judge, the Lord Chief Justice, reduced their sentences for assaulting career criminal Walid Salem, who was one of a three-man gang who broke into Munir Hussain's home and threatened his family at knife-point. But their criminal convictions stand....

    Well, this one is about the financial crisis:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...-gone-far.html

    Hard to imagine, isn't it, that just 15 months ago the chairman of Goldman Sachs was chasing around like a headless chicken trying to save his company from collapse.

    In the end Lloyd Blankfein's finance house was saved by a £6.25billion loan from legendary investor Warren Buffett and a bailout credit from Washington...

    An article about a hilariously P.C. letter to a parent--might this be the evil of which they speak? NO. Check it.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...ing-today.html

    Every sentence, every phrase, almost every word of the latest letter we've had from our 16-year-old's comprehensive school fills me with the deepest gloom.

    'Dear Parent/Carer,' it begins, and already my heart begins to sink.

    Yes, I understand the use of the singular, since so many of the letter's recipients are indeed single.

    And family arrangements being what they are in my part of South London, I dare say that some of my boys' schoolmates are being brought up by their grannies, aunts or people unrelated to them.

    This is about a criminal-- a white woman. Damn!


    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...--s-saint.html

    All along, right up to the moment she was jailed for murder and slipped from public gaze, Frances Inglis insisted she killed her son in an act of love.

    And, to this end, she has received much sympathy.

    Indeed, empathy has abounded, as it no doubt should. The Old Bailey jury was heckled as it returned a guilty verdict.

    An article of hope from Haiti. A pretty good one

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...pe-rubble.html

    No Hollywood director could have improved on the scene that was splashed across the pages of this and just about every other newspaper 24 hours ago.

    No reader could have turned the page without pausing, smiling, perhaps even shedding a tear.

    That one photograph summed up the horror and - yes - the hope of what has befallen Haiti. Kiki grins and holds out his arms in a picture published in the Mail yesterday

    The crushed masonry that formed the backdrop illustrated the power that created this tragedy.

    The determination of the rescuers who have laboured so mightily for so long was there too: sweat creasing the dust that lined their faces after their heroic efforts to find another survivor.

    At the centre of the picture: a little boy called Kiki.

    He is seven years old and he is beaming, his crooked tooth exposed in a smile as wide as his outstretched arms.

    His huge brown eyes sunk deep into his face tell of the suffering he must have endured since his world came crashing down on him eight days earlier, but the smile overshadows everything.

    We cannot see her face, but we can see the faces of Kiki's rescuers - well-fed Americans who have left their comfortable homes in the world's richest country to dig for survivors of an earthquake in one of the world's poorest.

    Mostly they find only bodies. But not this time. And some of them, too, have their arms outstretched like Kiki.

    Others applaud. Some appear stunned by what they have done. As well they might be.

    This is a picture of joy. It is almost biblical. Almost a resurrection scene or the raising of Lazarus that might have been painted by Caravaggio or Rembrandt.

    If there is one image that stays in our minds when the world's attention has moved on from Haiti it will surely be this one. But why?

    Why should it not be the picture of another Haitian child who also survived the earthquake?

    Her name is Wideline. There is no mother stretching out her arms to her - she died in the earthquake and so did her father and their home was utterly destroyed.
    A child is treated a makeshift hospital in Port-au-Prince

    Survivor: A child is treated in a makeshift hospital in Port-au-Prince. Tens of thousands of children in the island nation will need help for many years to come

    Wideline's only possession is the red tartan dress she wears. When she was asked how she was feeling she whispered only two words: 'hungry' and 'scared'.

    Wideline is infinitely more representative of what happened to Haiti than little Kiki.

    There are tens of thousands of children like her facing a bleak future and they will need our help for a very long time to come.

    But her picture will recede along with countless others like it.

    If not Wideline, why should the enduring image of the earthquake not be the doctors working against impossible odds to save the thousands who were so dreadfully injured?

    Paul McMaster, a British surgeon working with that heroic organisation Medicins Sans Frontieres, described how one of the most urgent tasks facing him and his colleagues was finding somewhere to buy a new hacksaw.


    More...

    Okay, let's check out the headlines. Surely they will reveal their seething racism there, won't they?

    * Haiti's tiniest miracle: Three-week-old baby Elisabeth found alive in rubble of her home
    * Haiti in hope and despair: The boy craving a hug after a week buried alive and the schoolgirl killed by police for looting
    * Guantanamo Bay to be used to house refugees fleeing Haiti earthquake
    * Rihanna covers Bob Marley's Redemption song while Simon Cowell gathers Brit singers to raise money for ravaged Haiti

    Just as Wideline and the surgeons will surely fade from our collective memories, so will the other images of the earthquake: the mass graves and bodies in the streets; the buildings crushed and the looters being shot.

    But Kiki and his rescue will remain and that, from one perspective, is wrong.

    The enduring image of the Vietnam War was also a small child: nine year-old Kim Phuc fleeing naked from her village after a napalm attack, screaming in agony from the burns to her skin.

    It will remind us for ever of the horror of warfare waged with such vile weapons and of the suffering of the innocent. And we need to be reminded.
    It represents, at the deepest level, a victory over death...

    A Story about someone I don't know. Seems the DM doesn't care for him. White guy, though...

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...t-wonders.html

    To the food-stall boy in the streets of Calcutta, he says: 'Very good. F****** spicy!' The boy looks about 12. Yes, Gordon Ramsay has been on TV again, this time in a three-part journey around India, called Gordon's Great Escape. And naturally, he's as fond of the f-word as ever.

    This one seems political, and may be the cause of all the angst of our weak-willed sissy boys

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-parquet.html
    Such a subtle operator, Jack Straw. He slides the scalpel between the ribs so skilfully that there is only the tiniest hiss as the puncture is made. Mr Straw, the Andrei Gromyko of New Labour, tried to appear relaxed before the Iraq Inquiry.

    And yet there were one or two tiny signs of nerves. More smiles than normal, genial though his public persona tends to be...


    Ah...now we're getting to it...they don't AGREE with our friends on some of the issues. So...they are racist.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...ar-advert.html

    And nobody mentioned the Renault advert? A list of the most irritating commercials on British television and not even a passing nod to the one for Renault's electric cars?

    The one with Ewan McGregor's pious sermon on global warming and the big gaps between each sentence so we know these ideas are Very Important Indeed?

    The one with the deadly dull music from Keane? The single most hypocritical piece of bandwagon jumping bullpoo ever to be unleashed on the British public at tea-time?

    An accurate take on a recent US election...NOW we get it. RACIST!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...lk-action.html

    The dramatic humiliation suffered by the Democratic Party and President Obama himself with the loss yesterday of the late Senator Ted Kennedy's Massachusetts seat in Congress to an unknown Republican politician, Scott Brown, can hardly be exaggerated.


    And...BLAH BLAH BLAH...

    David Cameron speaks during Prime Minister's Questions yesterday

    Bold: David Cameron speaks during Prime Minister's Questions yesterday

    A fierce argument is developing between the Tories and Labour over marriage which could turn out to be the most divisive in the election campaign.

    Despite an apparent wobble a couple of weeks ago, it is clear that David Cameron intends to offer tax breaks for marriage within the lifetime of a Parliament, though he has not yet spelt out what he will do.

    His proposals are being increasingly derided by Labour.

    Ed Balls, the Children's Secretary, who is taking the lead for the Government in this debate, has described the Tories' plans as 'social engineering'.

    He claims that tax breaks will disadvantage widows and divorced people who are single through no fault of their own.

    TODAY'S BREAKING VIEWS

    * MELANIE PHILLIPS: Cameron's right about Broken Britain, but it will take more than a few tax breaks to reverse our descent into savagery
    * PETER MCKAY: Labour's put us on red alert Home Secretary Alan Johnson raised the threat of a terrorist attack from 'substantial' to 'severe'
    * NATASHA WALTER: Feminism aimed to liberate women. Instead, it's spawned a promiscuous generation who believe their bodies are the way to success
    * BARRY NORMAN: The beauty who said no to Howard Hughes - and sabotaged her Hollywood career Jean Simmons was a real movie star
    * DAILY MAIL COMMENT: How will these catastrophic mistakes be avoided in future? There's a growing stench of a cover-up over the Edlington torturers' case

    ===============================================

    So, the evidence is in and it is conclusive. Our UK complainers about the Mail are whining babies unable to handle juuuuust a little bit of the real world.

    Next? We look at the other newspapers in the U.K. Do they really not report on crime unless it is committed by white folks? Sounds shaky...stay tuned!

    Re: The DAILY MAIL U.K. news source

    ROFL.

    Lets instead consider that any populist news source, or tv station, or government even, produce a wide range of output. Its the balance and underlying tone that one needs to keep in mind.

    Does Fox News ONLY have stories about Obama being a radical anti-white racist, or do they also have other uncontroversial news stories? (actually, this is a close one.....)

    Did the nazis ONLY murder Jews when in power, or did they also fix the roads and help their old people across the road?

    Does the Daily Mail have fluffy stories about bunnies and cute kids? Sure. Noone is claiming they dont.

    Its about the overall editorial bias, obviously something more subtle than you can comprehend. The Daily Mail print the same stories as other papers, but jump with gleeful abandon on any story that is homophobic, xenophobic or grubbily populist.

    Right on cue!

    Interesting that you would mention Fox, because it is for the same reasons--reporting the news, regardless of how it makes lilly-livered liberals feel--that the left doesn't like them.

    All while independent researchers agree that they report the most level range of stories.

    It is all about being weak at the core, and having no interest in knowing stuff...also lying. I will wait for your response to any of the challenges placed before you to prove your allegations of bias.


    Now pull that blanket over your head and wait for what will come...LOL
