This DailyMail has sunk to new depths.
Todays headline re the mother of BenStokes is completely beyond the pale.

News is news it seems, nothing much else comes into it when this disturbing kind of story attracts more readers so will no doubt continue to be published, for that very reason.

More information can be found on links below, the first I am guessing is the one probably referred to originally. The other two links also refer to the England cricketer Ben Stokes.


Mail Online:

Daily Mail:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ten-stars.html

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ne-minute.html


Other newspapers, the Sun, the Mirror and also New Zealand newspapers carried this news story as did other news outlets such as Yahoo.

Re: Disgraceful rag -Daily Mail

Itís a sensationalist story based on someoneís tragedy .
Not in the public interest at all.

What, no mention of the other media outlets running the story? Just the Daily Mail?

The Mail is Britain's finest Newspaper and has the awards to show for it.

Do tell us why you think it is "beyond the pale".

Don't be coy now!

Re: Disgraceful rag -Daily Mail

Because it is exploiting someone’s terrible tragedy that happened decades ago- long before Ben Stokes was born .
It can only cause distress to his mother.

Re: Disgraceful rag -Daily Mail

The vast majority of reporters are scum bags and have no problem raking up people's pasts. All they see is their pay cheques.
