Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week… The silliest one ever.

Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week... The silliest one ever.

It’s been a bit of a while since my last Daily Mail Story of the Week – so long a while that the feature should perhaps be renamed Daily Mail Nazi Story of the six weeks and five days. Give or take a few days. This is not for the lack of silly stories about the Nazis and Adolf Hitler in the DM, but the fact that there have been simply too many to comment about. Even I have been suffering from Silly Hitler Story Fatigue (SHSF). Read the rest of this entry »

I’m still here…

I'm still here...

It has been a long, long while since I last posted.

Work experience journalism

Much has been said about the journalistic profession, and how the quality of both writing and research has plummeted ever since online media started to outflank the printed press.

Und es ist vorbei.

Und es ist vorbei.

And so, it came to an end – stifled by a scarily impressive Spanish side that pulled yet another trick out of its impressive bag by swinging in a very old-fashioned corner and having their old-fashioned centre-back smash in an old-fashioned header. Well, we all knew better than to question Paul der Kraken-Orakel. Read the rest of this entry »

Daily Mail (World Cup) Story of the Week

Daily Mail (World Cup) Story of the Week

No Daily Mail Nazi Story of the Week this week – OK, there was a pointless story about Hitler ordering a high-spec Mercedes from his cell at Landsberg) – but their latest World Cup dossier on the German team certainly ranks right up there in the bullshit for the sake of it stakes.

Where do they find these people?

Where do they find these people?

England’s bid to host the football World Cup in 2018. It should be simple, shouldn’t it? This country now has a collection of international-standard stadiums, an infrastructure that while not perfect is way ahead of many of its potential rivals, and an enthusiasm for the game that is second to none. Then there is the fact that it would have been fifty-two years since England has hosted the tournament, which one could argue has been way too long for what is one of football’s traditional superpowers.

In the nick of time… DM (neo-)Nazi Story of the Week

In the nick of time... DM (neo-)Nazi Story of the Week

With the ongoing election campaign and subsequent drama with our hung parliament and the resulting political brouhaha, one might have thought that the entire Nazi Story of the Week newsdesk at Daily Mail Towers might have been relocated to a certain Mr Clegg’s back garden. Not the case, it seems – for just in time we get our weekly dose of the N-stuff. Read the rest of this entry »
