A good laugh. I liked the 'more info' as well:

Hello everyone. Me & Dan have written a song about The Daily Mail (a British newspaper).

We're aware this video won't mean an awful lot if you've never heard of The Daily Mail, but on the plus side, you've never heard of The Daily Mail.

Gonna watch it again.

However many of him there are, he's pure folk club material. Remember Miles Wootton?

A small variant on Fred's comment: I think the Mail's headline in the event of a nuclear strike on the capital would be LONDON HOUSE PRICES PLUMMET.

THE DAILY MAIL SONG
"Dan & Dan"

Royals on the first page, swine flu and road rage,
Find Maddie, foreign baddie, put him in a big cage,
Bureaucratic red tape, Facebook gang rape,
Gordon out, Dave in, before the country caves in.
Ian Huntley gets his own Jacuzzi and a gym in jail.
It's absolutely true because I read it in the Daily Mail.

Bring back capital punishment for paedophiles.
Photo feature on schoolgirl skirt styles,
Binge Britain, single mums, pensioners, hoodie scum,
Oversexed and under age, foreign stories half a page,
Criminals get Marks & Spencer vouchers when released on bail.
It's absolutely true because I read it in the Daily Mail.

Ban this gay smut. I'm not racist but....
Car crime, knife crime, hang-the-cheating-wife time.
Pop stars take drugs. Teen boys wear hoods.
Sports stars have sex. Bears shit in woods.
Brussels politicians want to stop us drinking English ale.
It's absolutely true because I read it in the Daily Mail.

Cilimategate, petrol prices, potholes, credit crisis,
Gypsies, Russell Brand, time we all took a stand,
Modern art, where to start? Trash the lot of it apart
From statuette of puppy, fifty quid plus B&B P&P.
Muslim women hiding stolen goods behind their veil.
It's absolutely true because I read it in the Daily Mail.

Poles paid to give blood. Immigration like a flood.
Soft touch British Isles. Cancer from your mobiles,
Cancer from your laptop, cancer from your root crop,
Cancer from your shoes, from your dog, from your pen top,
Immigrants arriving on an unprecedented scale.
It's got to be the case if it's written in the Daily Mail.
They never mince their words in the good old Daily Mail.
It's absolutely true because I gather all my views from the Daily Mail.

your 'Daily Mail' must be like our 'Daily Telegraph'

A friend produces bumper stickers "Is that the truth? Or did you read it in the Telegraph?' & "Is your News Limited?" (The Tele is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Ltd)

The tone reminds me of a Tom Paxton song from the end of the 60s/ early 70s In the DT
about an American "newspaper", The style of Dan and dan is different of course, How Lucky some people are, Never heard of the Daily Mail!!! wasnt that the paper someone said was written By ofiice boys For Office boys!

Tom Paxton was probably referring to the New York Daily News, which is not well known outside the New York area.

For comparison, here's the web site of the London Daily Mail. (Note that I linked to their news page, which isn't their home page.)

In the US, if you wanted to satirize a nationally-known news source of a similar bent, it would have to be Fox News, which is actually a cable TV channel, owned by Rupert Murdoch.

The Daily Mail isn't a Murdoch paper. It's had much the same bugbears for 100 years - back then it was campaigning against Jewish refugees from the Czarist pogroms. It supported Mussolini and Hitler for as long as it was legally feasible to do so, and has attacked refugees from Idi Amin's Uganda, Pinochet's Chile and Saddam's Iraq since.

The difference is that the Mail does have principles - Fascist ones. Murdoch media are just about building Murdoch's empire, any kind of principle would get in the way.

Actually, these days, the New York Post would be a better counterpart to the Daily Mail than the Daily News. But AFAIK there's no song about it.

Until that bloody Australian took it over, it was a fairly respectable tabloid with connections to the Democratic Party & the labor movement.
