The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday
The Daily Mail is a tabloid style British newspaper. First published in 1896 by Lord Northcliffe, it is the United Kingdom’s second biggest-selling daily newspaper after The Sun. Its sister paper, The Mail on Sunday was launched in 1982. The Daily Mail was Britain’s first daily newspaper aimed at the ‘middle-market’ and is known to sell a million copies a day.
According to the Wikipedia:
The Daily Mail considers itself to be the voice of Middle England speaking up for conservative values against what it sees as a liberal establishment. It generally takes an anti-EU, anti-mass immigration, anti-abortion view, based around what it describes as “traditional values”, and is correspondingly pro-family, pro-capitalism (though not always supportive of its aftereffects), and pro-monarchy, as well as, in some cases, advocating stricter punishments for crime. It also often calls for lower levels of taxation. The paper is generally critical of the BBC, which it argues is biased to the left.
The Daily Mail is a bit of a joke in many realms, because it takes itself rather seriously while reporting on sensationalist, sometimes absurd stories. They wear their conservative values on their sleeves and have to qualms about it. It’s fun to read though and is usually good for a laugh.
