New Statesman: Paul Dacre and The Daily Mail

Paul Dacre by Ralph Steadman

Paul Dacre by Ralph Steadman

Whilst I despise the Daily Mail and its editorial embodiment, Paul Dacre, as everything embarrassing about the British Press, there is no denying the paper’s popularity. It is worth checking out this informative piece on the rag’s editor-in-chief. Well balanced, the article by Peter Wilby – himself a former editor of both The Independent on Sunday and The New Statesman – is a great source for helping to understand why the Daily Mail is so popular, and how its online ego – MailOnline – became one of the world’s most popular news websites. An interesting read.

Will people now wake up and avoid this horrid publication in all its forms !?
