Having seen it discussed on here but having little experience of the publication I decided to research it to see if in fact I would enjoy the read. I found this useful website which provides some interesting arguments on the merits of the paper. I hope you find it useful.
How exactly does one “read” a publication that largely seems designed for a cabin crew readership and thus mostly consists of endless pictures of fat celebrities / celebrities looking hungover / celebrities out with their kids / celebrities that have had gastric bands fitted / celebrities with new fake knockers?
Is the Mail or any other paper actually there to provide accurate news or to make a profit? They profit from people going to the website to view outrageous stories. People write controversial articles to get people to read and discuss them.
It’s not the paper, it’s the website. The website is a mostly separate operation and it’s one of the most popular websites on the whole Internet. There is a good article somewhere on the New Yorker website.
