Daily Mail calls for ban of ‘titillating’ Daily Mail website
Moral Outrage News: The Daily Mail has launched a campaign to ban “titillating” and “deeply offensive” content from The Daily Mail website.
In an editorial entitled “The fightback for decency starts here”, the Daily Mail argues that there is “something deeply upsetting about about a newspaper that in print, has a veneer of respectability, yet online is wall to wall with pictures of women in underwear or bikinis.”
The Mail argues that “the necessary filters exist” to exclude such degrading content from the Daily Mail website and just require the government to force Internet Service Providers to apply them automatically.
The Mail also blames Google for children being able to view such content. They write, “All a child has to do is Google ‘The Only Way Is Essex upskirt Daily Mail’ and you see lurid pictures of a woman falling out of a taxi with an almost gynaecological view of her groin.”
“Is this the kind of sneering, misogynist attitude we should be encouraging our children to have?”
