Thread Name: Nic Jones In The Daily Mail
Subject: RE: Nic Jones In The Daily Mail
In response to Ian Pittaway above - the info was submitted by a reader, not a DM 'journalist'.
Those of us who have jobs with any kind of political angle, or have specialist knowledge of a particular subject, will long ago have learnt to recognise and despise the appalling misinformation put out on a daily basis by the DM; it is, I'm sure, stating the obvious to UK 'catters to say that virtually nothing in it is to be trusted, and a safe policy is to see what the 'Mail' says about anything at all and then take the opposite view. Trouble is, there are literally millions out there who take it as gospel - the letters page is frightening.
I need to lie down in a darkened room now.
