In the wake of the phone hacking scandal, new accusations are being made against pseudo-tabloid The Daily Mail that their stories could be interpreted as having an anti-foreigner slant.
After revelations that Red-Top journalists are actually a bunch of immoral bastards, newly emboldened commentators are beginning to venture opinions that your dad’s favourite paper might be unduly hash on people from a different country. Daily Mail executive Roger Founds commented: ‘I don’t know where these accusations have come from. We have always prided ourselves on unbiased, objective journalism. To hear that we are being accused of bias has rocked us to the core.’
Despite these denials, Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger said: ‘It has been known for some time that The Mail might not like foreigners, some people have suggested that many of the stories featured could be seen as being fixated on immigration and EU legislation. I am sure,however, that The Daily Mail are not the only publication that could be accused of this.'
Speaking from the graveside of Princess Diana, a spokesperson from the Daily Express said: ‘Oh yeah, we do hate foreigners. You can quote me on that.’
