ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I remember the ultimate tabloid headline as being: ‘Pop star in sex change mercy dash to palace’
Still a classic: “Headless body found in topless bar.”
Shame he wasn’t a bogus asylum seeker too. That would have pushed every button.
I’d say this is more of a “shake your head and tut at the human trash” kind of story. For a good, apoplectic asylum-seeker headline, you’d ideally want them to be “jumping the NHS queue in front of a cancer-filled 6 year daughter of a war hero.”
Nearly. He really needs to be a lesbian as well.
The embedded “more tittle tattle and brain-drying silliness” box has as the top article “Lesbian basketball star ‘who tried to blow up ex-girlfriend’s car’ released on $100,000 bail on condition she wears an ankle tag”
transexual lesbian …
What, no pictures of the cheese toastie in question? I’d hardly call this news reporting!
Not that I expect anything less from the Daily Fail, but the article actually contradicts its own headline and says he got 20 weeks rather than 20 days. Sadly, though, I’m more inclined to guess that the 20 weeks is the typo…
Given that it’s the Daily Fail, I’d expect precisely none of the claims in the article to be true.
