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 Wikipedia, it 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 to write for a publisher, specialised in slut-shaming humping puppies.

Enjoy these in the knowledge, that the current owner Lord Rothermere is a tax dodging billionaire, who great granddad got all hot and bothered about Hitler.

  1. “Most shockingly, its readership is largely from the educated socioeconomic layers”

    Why shocking? Educated people need things to laugh at

  2. Ok, so the Daily Mail’s readers are highly educated on average? Could someone please fill me in on what kind of absurd, toxic school system produces clowntards like these people?

  3. Proud to say i have been band from the Daily Mail 3 times for insulting it readers commenting.Words i have used.Retards,idiots.Morons,Fuckwits,and those are just towards the Mods.Seriously though if a picture of a new born baby dead washed up on a beach gets thousands of agreeing green arrows with comments along the lines of “well the parents should have stayed in Iraq” “”no one asked them to set sail”With one even saying “well thats one less benefit scrounger coming here”.Makes you really think of the type of reader that rag attracts.

  4. the DM is the biggest pile of McDonalds there is but it reels them in every time! If we keep buying this tripe, it won’t be good!

  5. I am sure the d.mail. tries hard to force thier, views on people, I get sick of the constant drilling into anyone who does ,i object to the constant condeming of china , various people , it goes on and on, what is the agenda , you are very biased once you get your teeth into someone you do not stop jane

  6. I got banned for quoting a book reference, silly me thinking that DM readers actually have the ability to read anything more intellectual than Charlie and Lola.

  7. I find the Mail on Sunday is a very racist paper. I would not waste my money to buy. And its readers are from less educated people. That’s all I have to say

  8. Daily Mail are heading towards a subscription model, pretty sure even right wing fascists won’t pay for their daily dose of conspiracy theories when they can find a zero cost cesspit to get them from (C-Span). Also, the UK has a public education system so it should come as no surprise that it’s readers are technically educated, unfortunately education has little to do with hate and petty spite.
