No, some idiotic tabloid artist gets paid to overstate facts without the proper authorities making an official statement.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

Talking of idiotic tabloids, apparently the Daily Mail are most upset about this cartoon in the Guardian:

Dear Daily Mail, if you can't take hate; don't dish out the hate.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

"For the Guardian - which, because of criminally stupid business decisions has lost hundreds of millions of pounds over the years - we have one question: in the name of sanctimony, what, when you handle your own affairs so badly, gives you the right to sit in judgement on other papers?
Your jaded product is addicted to subsidy and steeped in public sector mentality - which is when you merely preach the same failed answer to every problem: throw more public money at it."


Feel that burn.

The Sun probably had the right idea, just ignore Rowson's cartoon. If Paul Dacre hadn't had this meltdown how many Mail readers would have seen this?

The Guardian is also a shit, hate-filled gutter rag. Guess it takes one to spot one.

Yep. Almost as butthurt as Dacre's frothing full-page rant.

You're right, I forgot to add that they dodge taxes whilst telling you that you're a Nazi too.

I think the point is that it doesn't have such an openly and sustained agenda against immigrants with almost daily inflammatory headlines that are not-so-thinly-veiled suggestions that "they are coming to take your jobs and rape your children" you see in the Daily Mail and Mail Online.

They seem to have their own in-tray at IPSO, too. The latest one being almost 2000 complaints concerning the article tooting about the poor guy in flat zero of the Grenfell fire. Apparently it was his "exploding" fridge, which he did nothing about apart from pack a suitcase and leg it, none of which was substantiated nor even true.

The comments which were vomited all over the bottom of the article made me ashamed to be British.

Of course it doesn't.

That's because their agenda is against the British people.

A primal response to fear is rage. We don't know this man's condition or history but I would guess the drip-drip effect of years of tabloid fear mongering and anti-Muslim innuendo hasn't helped.

Funny how the British tabloid press can radicalise white British men, yet the Koran is in no way responsible for the radicalisation of Muslims.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

The circulation figures don't mean anything, though. All the printed press has nose-dived with many going out of print completely. Most people get their news online.
