Fucking hell, guys.
it's the one thing i miss about getting the bus in the morning
My mornings instantly improved.
controversial stuff I know
I had no alternative but to set the paper on fire
The time period for signing this petition has ended.
^ WTF the fuck is that shit about?
the dog from the film The Artist.
that journalism.... is going..... to the dogs
The interview was into dogging.
by a free-rag interviewer.
I do tend to skim it, I get the bus at 6:58am. I don't mind the Metro, it gives a (fairly) balanced and light hearted view on the news. Imagine if everyone got given the Daily Mail each day, people would be frothing at the mouth by the time they got to work.
the Metro is the Daily Mail.
(or more specifially, yesterday's Daily Mail)
It is much different in tone. We get all the papers in work so get a chance to read them all. The Mail will have a screaming front page, the Metro is slightly more factual. They even print letters which differ in opinion to each other, rather than the Sun-esque 15 letters which all make the exact same point.
The tone is slightly less hysterical, and they don’t feature opinion columns, but a lot of the stories, especially the celebrity ones, are a straight lift from the Mail or its website.
or just heard lefties moaning about it?
and it was exactly as dreadful as I expected. Open racism and homophobia throughout, balanced with screaming hysteria about climate change and the so called 'PC state', vapid celebrity news and shit sports coverage. Don't try to defend it please.
The Sun, on the other hand, is very fun.
Featuring summaries of press agency reports, yesterday’s Daily Mail articles, lots and lots of photos of minor celebrities falling out of nightclubs and the worst cartoons known to man. It’s handed out to commuters in the major cities of the UK.
Story screamed: SHE'S GIVEN UP ON TRYING TO RIVAL LADY GAGA, AND HAS THROWN IN THE TOWEL.
Actual quote in the article itself from her: "i'm not competing with people like that."
Article: SHE HAD TIGERS IN HER VIDEO. BASICALLY TRYING TO BE GAGA.
They fucking infuriate me, but I love them
pretending to be an old woman who was thanking her delivery men for carrying a sofa up 4 flights of stairs and then wishing them luck with their pint that night. it got published
Good work. I hate that thing
However I do sometimes catch a glimpse whenever Rihannas in it wearing just a bra.
Just full of ridiculous animal stories. Even if there's not some kind of animal on the front page, it's pretty much guaranteed that there'll be about 5 or 6 other animal stories in there - usually with a double spread donated to some kind of life saving panda or the worlds oldest dog enjoying its birthday.
Not even saying anything about it, just screenshots with a fucking transcript of the screenshot. SLOW NEWS WEEK you bunch of lazy twats
