To think the Daily Fail loathe women

The first story is women wearing clothes at Aintree - most of the women are not looking their best and they have taken the worst photographs possible of the worst dressed and most overweight women.

It is not possible that they all looked so dreadful so surely this proves how much they hate women or they'd have thrown in a few normal looking women ?

The last woman they've taken a picture of is a woman vomiting which they think is down to drink - obviously that's not known, for all we know she ate a bad prawn

Does the DM hate women?

I want to agree with you fairycake but... I'm kind of thinking that women who k-e-e-p reading and publicising the Daily Mail all the flipping time, don't like women much either. It's a tabloid, there's no news in it is there? confused

No shit Sherlock

In the 1970s Germaine Greer claimed that men hate women and have taught women to hate themselves. I think this is still true.

Can anyone link to a long running thread all about the DM.
I meant to plough through it all but I forgot.

Obviously could try and search it myself, but am feeling lazy this evening amongst other things.

As regards the op, I did wonder if someone just got fed up of printing pictures of women looking nice.

The Daily Mail website is a sexist, ageist load of shite but I still read it because it's entertaining

PolarBear Give yourself an internet point!!! grin

Hates every one except middle aged white straight home counties men

Oh is it time for the annual 'point and laugh at the women dressed up for the races' article.
How dare those larger ladies get dressed up and out. Lets take the piss out of them and put them in their place.

I clicked on it to look at the fashion people were wearing

To find they hadn't taken fashionable pictures but instead just ones that were very unflattering

Sure I know they hate women in their editorials and the scum bags that post comments but their main lead story is look at how repulsive women are

This is hardly publicity for the paper considering I called it the Daily Fail

vile comic brought by the bewildered.

my dm buys and reads it and unfortunately belives every word do we are overrun by foreigners taking our jobs, industry is on it's knees because of womem expecting maternity leave and today's kids are out of control due to women working and lack of discipline in society!

she loves her Polish neighbours, her dds both work and took maternity leave and she has never really met a bad teen and adores her grandchildren

bewildered. it's a vile paper and yes hates women.

Daily fail hates everyone. Women, working class, nhs, immigrants, christians, you name it...

126sticks Thu 03-Apr-14 19:59:51

Do you think the DM do things like that to publisicise themselves?

In which case, I think it works.

It feels like to me, talking about a paper or people is better than not talking about them, from their pov.
In which case, they "succeed"

It seem to me, that all media outlets are going down that route. And I think lots of posters now include mumsnet it that.

It appears to be how the game is played nowadays.

Again, I could be wrong, but there just doesnt seem to be much "news" anymore. [could be because I am older and have heard most things before].
And coupled with the 24 hour coverage, and talk talk talk done on twitter, facebook etc, they have to keep ahead of the game?

Discuss!!

[prob all be done before on that other DM thread]

Childfree

126sticks Thu 03-Apr-14 20:13:20

ooh no.
The long DM thread seems to have been pulled?
It was on past 900 posts last time I saw it on active I think?

SplitHeadGirl Thu 03-Apr-14 20:18:10

Paul Dacre is a piece of shit. The DM used to be ok (years and years ago) but now is so hate-filled it just makes for nasty, unpleasant reading.....plus, it has become REALLY boring!

JerseySpud Thu 03-Apr-14 20:21:15

Yes. the Daily Fail hates everyone who isn't just like them

So Racist, Sexist arseholes!

But if it hates women, how come their side column is full of them?

I realise I may be missing the obvious somehow.

BethCalavicci Thu 03-Apr-14 21:12:17

One of my guilty pleasures is reading the Daily Mail website daily (I know that'll probably merit me being kicked off MN, but meh grin )
Even I read that article today though and actually laughed out loud at some of the photos.
Seriously, could those pictures BE any more unflattering?! channels inner Chandler
Do they do that for Royal Ascot ladies as well, (doubt it) or is it just the Northeners they want to portray as munters?!

No fairycake, you ARE giving them publicity. What you actually say about their 'articles' is quite irrelevant; you're giving them what they want - all attention is good. Do that if you want but accept that that is what you're doing, unwittingly or not.
