Freedom of the press is one thing, but the headlines on and in the Daily Fail amount to ISIS propaganda. Headline today saying that ISIS terrorists in the UK should stay hidden and wait for further orders is working for them IMHO.

Obviously I am not BU!

I hate them giving a platform to all the horrific videos and pictures that are posted on the internet. There should be some self-censorship over material like that.

Censorship is never good, it's the start of a slippery slope. YABVU op, of course the mail aren't working for ISIS. they are reporting on stories, it's their job.

donthave I'm not talking about censoring opinion or freedom of speech. However I do think explicit videos of beheadings, dead and mutilated remains should be censored, especially in a high-profile publication like this. They have a responsibility that other publications seem able to follow.

Lots of the teenagers I teach look at these grotesque videos, which is totally messed up. It's voyeuristic, pornographic and only serves to feed the beast. At the very least there should be a parental filter for those kind of articles. The Mail think nothing of putting this sort of thing right at the top of their front page, inviting all to have a look.

YABVU.

Freedom of the press is isn't 'one thing'; it's EVERYTHING and it's one of the many hard won freedoms that a group of psychopathic barbarians don't want the western world to have.

'it's one of the many hard won freedoms that a group of psychopathic barbarians don't want the western world to have.'

Bit of a simplistic view. hmm
