A lovely bif of hypocrisy from the Mail on this article: ‘You should have stayed in Emmerdale! Roxanne Pallett resorts to full frontal nudity in low-budget killer crocodile horror’. The Daily Mail suggest that:
The R-Rated made-for-TV-film sees killer crocodiles terrorise residents of a small community.
The premise apparently provided the script-writers with the perfect excuse for many gratuitous skinny-dipping scenes.
The premise that this is somehow news provides the Daily Mail with the perfect excuse for many gratuitous pictures of the skinny-dipping scenes – and as usual there are more pictures than text. Elsewhere on the Daily Mail website we have articles like: ‘The raunchy sex scene featuring a topless Helen Mirren that British film fans won’t see’, unless of course, they read the Daily Mail in which case they are treated to some screen grabs.
Nothing is more amusing that the Daily Mail complaining about a celebrity displaying too much cleavage, arse, leg or more… when they then slap pictures of said celebrity and cleavage, arse, leg or more. Today it is Britney Spears who has wondered outside without a bra and has been caught by paparazzi smuggling peanuts (for want of a better phrase). Of course, if the Daily Mail was really disgusted with such a sight they would either a: not mention it at all; or b: talk about how disgusted they are with such a spectacle but not post any pictures of said offence – because that would surely defeat the purpose of being outraged by such a public display. How can they declare the top ‘unsuitable’, but it then becomes ‘suitable’ when they plaster pictures all over the article?
Of course, the Daily Mail plasters the photos across its website because they are determined to titillate their readers with a glimpse of cotton-nipple if they can’t get their favoured topless shots. It always amuses me when they angrily state ‘X wore such-in-such in public, how disgusting’ when really, the idea of wearing something in public is normally to be seen by a limited amount of strangers. Surely it is far worse to broadcast on a popular website pictures of the person as this will inflict it upon far more members of the public. Still, anything for a extra few visitors.
Britney Spears nipples, Britney Spears cleavage, boobs!
Imagine solely writing stuff just to drive a few extra visitors to your site, it’s sad, it really is.
