info-pictogram1 This greedy puffin was caught on camera stuffing himself with more fish than he could fit in his mouth. Amateur photographer Mike Meysner captured the portly puffin mid-snack as he snapped the birds. He said: ‘The puffin shots were taken on the Farne Islands, a 20 minute boat ride from the Northumberland coast. I’ve taken lots of pictures of puffins, and I know they are all roughly the same size, but this shot did make me laugh because he looks huge.

UK media caught stirring up extremist hatred on Muslim internet forum

The following comment was posted on an online chat forum for Muslims yesterday inviting responses:

mail-muslim-extremist-1

Some of the other members of the forum became suspicious by the strange comment and decided to check the new member’s ISP address:

mail-muslim-extremist-2

More up-to-date checks of the ISP address by other members of the forum showed the comment was posted by someone working at the Daily Mail Group (the Evening Standard used to be part of the Daily Mail Group):

mail-muslim-extremist

The whole thread has now been deleted from the forum but it can still be viewed on Google’s webcache here.

So it seems the Daily Mail ordered one of their journalists to pose as an extremist on a Muslim forum to try to elicit comments they could use for an anti-Muslim story.

Fortunately they were busted.

In a civilized society, a national newspaper journalist trying to stir up hatred and controversy with lies and subterfuge should be so professionally shameful it would normally lead to the sack for the hack concerned and investigations into standards of journalistic accountability at the publication.
