You won’t be surprised by this, but when agendas are so sharply exposed they are still breathtaking. As Aaron mentioned earlier today, Alex Hilton over on LabourHome published this email sent by “journalist” Diana Appleyard:

PUBLICATION: Daily Mail (Request for personal case study)
JOURNALIST: Diana Appleyard (staff)
DEADLINE: 14-February-2008 16:00
QUERY: I am urgently looking for anonymous horror stories of people who have employed Eastern European staff, only for them to steal from them, disappear, or have lied about their resident status. We can pay you £100 for taking part, and I promise it will be anonymous, just a quick phone call. Could you email me asap? Many thanks, Diana
HOW TO REPLY:
Email: mailto:dianaappleyard@aol.com


Journalists frequently put out calls for case studies, more in some areas than others, but the nakedness of the agenda here is amazing.

I have no doubt they quietly put out feelers for other minority groups too. Know a dodgy Muslim? Snitch them in! Make money and have a horror story about how Muslims are destroying our society. If you’re lucky, Melanie Phillips will then mention it in her next column.

According to her website, Diana Appleyard is also a contributor Women’s Hour too. And I wonder if she’s member of the NUJ too. Isn’t this against journalist ethics?

I think a national campaign of vilification via email is in order…fight fire with fire and see how that rag likes it.

I believe etiquette is to credit when you pinch someone else’s blog post, as I did when I nicked this story off Tez Burke yesterday… 😉

… LMAO or then again maybe I just can’t read

Castigate at will, everyone LOL

Gosh, who would have thought that a journalist would go out looking for horror stories?

I think it’s called a “hate campaign”.

As we all know, The Daily Mail’s offices are sitting above the world’s largest proven reserves of pure evil.

Just a thought – if all this is just fair journalistic practise can we start a collection and then, when it’s large enough, offer it to the first person who can come up with some dirt on Mrs Appleyard or one of her Daily Mail colleagues?

Obviously they could remain anonymous, it’d just take a quick phone call, etc.

From headline:
“Daily Mail Journalist racist agenda exposed”

Remember, when the politically correct use the term racist, they simply mean white Gentiles who discriminate.

It is a racial slur directed only at white Gentiles. Racist = honky, or honky-ish.

So, the translation of the quote would be: “Daily Mail Journalist honky agenda exposed”

There just doing what they do best. They called this one… w*****s.

Support for Nazism and Fascism

In early 1934, Rothermere and the Mail were sympathetic to Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists[9]. Rothermere wrote an article, “Hurrah for the Blackshirts”, in January 1934, in which he praised Mosley for his “sound, commonsense, Conservative doctrine”[10].
Rothermere was a friend and supporter of both Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, which influenced the Mail’s political stance towards them up to 1939. During this period, it was the only British newspaper consistently to support the German Nazi Party.[11][12] Rothermere visited and corresponded with Hitler on many occasions. On 1 October 1938, Rothermere sent Hitler a telegram in support of Germany’s invasion of the Sudetenland, and expressing the hope that ‘Adolf the Great’ would become a popular figure in Britain.

9. twice fortnightly

oh yeah, thats from wiki by the way so i doubt its even true.

Obviously it s wrong, if true (looks remarkably stupid).

How would you react if she was asking for examples of how British workers were lazy and unreliable and that Eastern European migrants were hardworking? The Mail and numerous other newspapers often run such stories. Its now so ingrained that some employers discriminate against local British workers.

Would you scream racism?

    how journalism works (again)…

    It may be old news to you that the Daily Mail is a despicable organ of hate and intolerance, but regardless – this little gem is definitely worth reading, and forwarding to that misguided Daily Mail reader in your life.
    As standard practice, journalist…
