In a well-researched 20-minute presentation at The Pod Delusion‘s third birthday, Martin Robbins (the Berkshire-based researcher and science writer from the Guardian) portrays the Daily Mail as the disingenuous, sensationalist, opportunistic rumour-factory that many of you may already suspect it to be. Robbins explains in vivid, foul-mouthed and hilarious detail how the Daily “Fail” fosters an overwhelmingly negative view of the world, which can prove to be corrosive for its readers – of whom Robbins’ grandfather is one – over the long term.

He begins by looking at Daily Mail’s sinister approach to six-year old Suri Cruise about whom they have published over 824 stories under Editor Paul Dacre. Then he moves from the implicit sexualisation of young children to the Mail’s xenophobic and fearmongering approach to publishing.
