Irony Bypass

A newspaper is outraged over companies trying to exploit public interest in Raoul Moat to make money.

According to a google news search the paper in question, the Daily Mail, has run 62 stories about the pathetic inadequate in the last 4 days.

I'm not sure why the 'Daily Mail' doesn't just change it's name to rhe 'Daily Outrage' and be done with it!

Did you see yesterday's print edition of the Mail? (Pub copy, I hasten to add. None of my money changed hands.)

The "centre spread" was a pictorial history of Victoria Beckham's hair styles. A bit lost on me, I fear. When I got to the hairdo she was wearing at the time of David's alleged dalliance with Rebecca Loos, all I could think of was the reality TV show during which the redoutable Miss Loos was filmed wanking a pig.

Exactly! Tomorrow they'll be running a story about the hypocrisy of the MSM.

Julia- or just turn the 'M' upside down.

Edwin- The wanking off a pig incident is one of the TV highlights of the decade, more intersting than Posh's haircuts.

Mark- The Grauniad were the first newspaper to conveniently forget their own record on the matter and denounce sensationalist reporting.

I'm sure Paul Dacre wouldn't do that ... would he?
