13 reasons why the Daily Mail is the world’s worst “newspaper”

whydailymailworstnewspaper

To get a grasp of the UK’s garbage media landscape, an outsider need look no further than The Daily Mail. Founded in 1886, to quote was Britain’s first daily newspaper “aimed at the newly literate lower-middle class market resulting from mass education, combining a low retail price with plenty of competitions, prizes and promotional gimmicks”.

Today, The Daily Mail is an outlet not only for your garden-variety conservative politics but a legitimizer of xenophobia, racism, sexism, not to mention and an abusive and dull-minded culture of celebrity worship/stalking. Most shockingly, its readership is largely from the educated socioeconomic layers of Britain.

You can quite literally buy a copy any day to see what a vile rag it is, but to save you your money we’ve picked out some fine headlines from The Daily Mail’s recent past. These titles sound like things a demented zombie version of Hyacinth Bucket would write if it were recruited from a viral publisher, which specialised in slut-shaming headlines above pictures of humping puppies. Enjoy these in the knowledge, the current own Lord Rothermere is a tax dodging billionaire, who great granddad got all hot and bothered about Hitler.

This week saw an extraordinary attack on the British judiciary. A day after three British High Court judges ruled that a parliamentary vote was required to begin the process of Britain leaving the European Union, they were labelled “enemies of the people” by The Daily Mail.

This once pro-Hitler rag has a long tradition of anti-EU, anti-immigration scare mongering neo-nationalism. In fact, it’s one of a quartet of newspapers (the others being The Sun, the Daily Express and The Telegraph) which has helped the UK earn the dubious accolade of having Europe’s most right-wing press.  Headlines labelling one of the High Court judges an “openly gay ex-Olympic fencer” goes a long way to show level they stoop to.
