Great publisher, great deal. Have a heat.

Seems to be all left-wing anti-capitalist rubbish, lots of marx/marxism, etc.

Rather than the Daily Mail Common Sense that says, "Climate change is a Marxist conspiracy" or "Encourage the wealthy with tax breaks; encourage the poor with austerity"?

For your pleasure: … For your pleasure: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2011/jun/16/daily-mail-climate-changehttps://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2015/03/22/behind-the-benefit-bashing-headlines-lies-a-nasty-ideology-that-is-not-confined-to-the-daily-mail/Oversight: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Daily_Mail


Well, if that's the best you can come up with then your original vitriolic critique amounts to nothing but hot air.

The first link is to a 5-year old article in that Left-wing rag The Guardian which criticises the Mail for "reducing emissions while the paper continues to publish the views of climate sceptics." I couldn't see anything about the Mail claiming a "Marxist conspiracy".

The second is a blog by some agitating non-entity calling himself Johnny Void who, in passing, says only that "Behind the benefit bashing headlines however much more insidious ideas have been at work that have not come from the front pages of the Daily Mail", and that other views are "more dangerous than any acid-tongued viper at the Daily Mail"! Nothing in the blog about the paper encouraging the wealthy with tax breaks or "the poor with austerity" nor that "Marxist conspiracy".

The final one, from some 'radical' pretend wiki, sums up it's leanings in the very first sentence "The Daily Mail (aka, Hate Mail, Daily Fail, Daily Heil, Daily Moan, Crazy Mail and so on)...", so isn't really worth you quoting nor me commenting further on except to say I saw nothing about either the "Marxist conspiracy" or claiming that the Mail "encourage/s the wealthy with tax breaks; encourage/s the poor with austerity".

Roy Greenslade in The Guardian:

"...It is fair, also, to include on that roll-call of hands-off proprietors Lord Rothermere (aka Jonathan Harmsworth), the dynastic proprietor of the Daily Mail. I have never heard anyone suggest that he interferes in the duties of his editor-in-chief, Paul Dacre."
