Quote of the day

Peter Wilby on Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre’s latest belch of self-righteousness:

Dacre says that “it is the duty of the media to take an ethical stand.” Pick up the Daily Mail and you will see that his idea of ethics includes running stories that are, at best, distorted and, at worst, plain wrong. The existence of papers like that makes the BBC’s survival as a reliable news source all the more important.

Amen.
