Disgusting "journalism" . I wish I could be shocked but this http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/co...-routine-.html just sums up the DM
OT, but I remember the headline about Colin Ireland, the gay killer, when the tabloids were allowed to call him the 'Fairy Liquidator'.

Times have moved on a little but it's pretty appalling to think that as recently as the 80s/90s certain groups were deemed so worthless to the lofty tabloid culture (as a reflection of society at that time) that people were encouraged to laugh at such misfortune under the guise of creating a witty one-liner.
