I have noticed that the majority of posters who quote a paper use the Mail/Guardian, and denigrate both, with the 'daily hate' 'grauniad' type put downs.

But as far as I can see you must be reading it to find the quotes and articles.

So are you buying it to read, or are you buying it like Mayfair, for the articles on warfare?

I'm outraged to see that you didn't include an option stating "I read it so that I can find something to be outraged about".

I hide the Mail inside something less embarassing, like kiddy fiddlers and horse interferers weekly - can hold my head up high whilst feeling guilty inside.....

the Daily Mail is a scumrag that I wouldn't wipe my arse on. A work of fiction, subjectivity and utter, utter bollocks from cover-to-cover. Whilst not singlehandedly responsible for the existence of little Englanders, white van man and the fuckwarts who plague our streets with England flags they are an outrageous calumny of shysters, the bloody lot of 'em.

...and, breathe, mentalist, mate.

Guardian's not much better.

Could have sworn I got something scarily similar off the Dailymailomatic a few months back.

Today's is the genius headline "HAVE CHAVS GIVEN BRITAIN'S SWANS CANCER?"

I absolutely LOVE reading the Daily Mail online version.

Not for their witty columnists, for there are none.

Not for their unbiased view of the world, for these is not one.

Not for their incredible sports coverage, as that is nonexistent.

No, we should all read the Daily Mail online just so that you can giggle uncontrollably at some of the readers comments on each article!!! If you thought ARRSE had some nutters........

Mine gave me "Will Feminism Scrounge Off The Church"

It seems that reality trumps satire when it comes to the Mail. :lol:

Okay, so far we've had Daily Mail and Guardian are shite, which they may well be.

However what other choices do members recommend?

As far as I can see, you have the Times and the Sun (both Murdoch afaik) The Mirror (Left wing Labour supporting) The Telegraph (right wing Tory supporting) etc etc.

So what do you all read?

There,s a super pull out puzzle page in the Mail!
I find it takes up most of my working day...excellent value for 50p I find. :)
I'll second that. On a good day, I'll complete all the puzzles during the journeys to and from work. It doesn't leave time to read the news but, hey, I've got ARRSE to tell me the relevant stuff. :)

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Do you take them both on subscription or do you restrict yourself to the Mail with an occasional Grauniad? Is your van taxed?
