(not satire – it’s the UK press!)
The Daily Mail have written to me rejecting my complaint that they bullied and smeared two young children – and revealed their identities – in one of their articles.
You can see my original letter of complaint here:
In fact, the Daily Mail’s so-called Readers’ Editor was so outraged that I had actually dared to complain about one of their articles that he or she threatened me with being “defamatory”:
“Your claims that the parents referred to in the article had been ‘targeted’, ‘tricked’ and told ‘lies’ by journalists at The Mail Online are untrue, unsubstantiated and defamatory.”
DEFAMATORY: damaging the good reputation of someone; slanderous or libellous.
In other words – dare to complain to us about one of our articles and we might sue you.
So you’d better shut the f*ck up.
