Just when you thought Daily Mail comments couldn't sink lower......they let "Rupert, Yorkshire" discuss rape in Libya
I was mithering on Twitter the other day that the Mail had published one of my comments on their site, but sub-edited it slightly to change the meaning and remove criticism of their editorial - just as they did in 2007 over an article about “suicidal” 5 year olds phoning ChildLine.
So it is worth remembering that when they publish comments like...
“This isn't the full story as it was said the woman has mental problems.” - rupert, Yorkshire, UK, 29/3/2011 20:22
“What we should do is send all the Libyans currently living in Britain back to Libya and let them fight.” - Steve Bishop, London, 29/3/2011 20:15
...underneath a story about the situation of Iman Al-Obeidi in Libya, they’ve passed both pre-moderation and sub-editing, and the Mail still thought them worthy of publishing.
