Reporting in ‘good faith’, again

The Daily Mail have jumped on some figures obtained by the Daily Telegraph from the Metropolitan Police on black crime statistics: ‘Black men ‘to blame for most violent city crime’… but they’re also the victims‘. As with most Daily Mail journalism this article – from Rebecca Camber – is a copy-and-paste job from the Daily […]

A lie about Tesco breaking the law

Panorama reporter Paul Kenyon has written an article for the latest issue of British Journalism […]

Hayley From Manchester Incurs Wrath of Chile

Every now and again a comment on the Mail website manages to stand out amongst the unpleasantness to be mind-numbingly inhumane, step forward Hayley from Manchester on the news that Chile has suffered an earthquake of 8.8 magnitude: Another country that’s going to be begging for our money and resources?
