Found this interesting comment over on Tabloidwatch’s blog and have copied and pasted it here to demonstrate just how low the Daily Mail stoop to bash the BBC. No further comment is needed:
…there was a classic piece of Mail-ese Beeb bashing today…
The front page includes a picture of the new Doctor Who girl, Karen Gillan, and the headline:
‘Doctor Who’s new girl ‘too sexy’.
The article inside has quotes from fans on messageboards. Well, two, to be precise.
“‘They’ve completely demeaned Doctor Who by replacing good episode stories with slutty girls.’ “
So I googled it…
It brings up this:
Scroll down, ‘un-hide’ a comment at the bottom and you find:
“They’ve completely demeaned Doctor Who by replacing good episode stories with slutty girls. Ew, I hope Karen Gillan gets killed off, ugly mother fhucker.”
Nice, eh? Wonder why they missed out the second part.
The other quote they used…
“‘Why did she dress up as a tarty policewoman? Surely that’s not fitting for a family show.’ “
Well check out this post from DigitalSpy, dated 17/12/09.
“Amy Pond – Do we know why she’s dressed as a tarty policwoman??
I’m guessing she’s not an actual policewoman??
I did think strippogram but surely thats not fitting for a family show…
so, any ideas?? ”
In the bigger scheme of things, it’s probably not that important.
But it highlights their quality journalism and exhaustive research.
