    Do the online column of shame stories get printed in the paper ?

    I read it out of a perverted curiosity. And my wife buys it at weekends.

    It's occurred to me in the past that there's probably a business to be made out of making bog paper that reproduces the DM. I'm sure quite a lot of people would pay good money to get that extra little bit of satisfaction out of every dump...

    My wife has just bought home a copy.
    So just spent half an hour going through it.
    Even the football reporting is third rate.
    The only decent section seems to be the review supplement.

    often have a look at the Wail website to see what the numpties that buy it are being told to think.

    The Online version does provide updates on the latest sleb nonentities: weight gain, weight loss, holiday destination, celulite, boyfriend/girlfriend, baby-bump, diet regime, excercise regime, tattoo, bikini, camel toe, fashion, drunken nights out, vajazzle.
    It's the only bit it does well ...

    I've just read (my wife's) edition. Nothing in the paper itself, at all.

    Readership information is easily available online, because it's of interest to advertisers. The typical mail reader is over 65 (42%), in social class C1 (clerical/junior manager) (33%), and female (52%). 70% of them read no other newspaper. By contrast, the typical Guardian reader is under 24 (19% - though there's a very even spread of readers throughout the age profile), male (53%) and in social class AB (professional/managerial) (66%).

    Curiously, the Telegraph is rather coy about its current readership, preferring instead to publish some fluffy aspirational guff. Its last published profile said that 38% of readers were over 65 - not far short of hte Mail's profile.

    I know where I'd choose to invest if I wanted a long-term future in newspapers.

    The online site also amends history - such as by deleting the hate-filled article by Littlejohn that helped hound Lucy Meadows to her death.

    Littlejohn is a spiteful, odious coward.

    The liberal minded journalists of the Daily Mail may be taking a hammering on this forum, but at least they can console themselves with the knowledge that in the 1930's that other staunch defender of human rights,Adolf Hitler,regarded it as the best newspaper in Britain.

    That would be the result of the infamous DM headline

    "Hurrah For The Blackshirts!"

    Which remains a facepalm moment for the DM to this day.

    I don't think that Mail journo who tried to get the membership of Mumsnet to whip up some evidence for her ever responded to their reaction. I'd love to have seen her face as she read that thread....
