Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper isn’t quite what it appears.
From the outside, it looks like a sensationalist buffet, focusing on things like showbiz and celebrity culture. Which it is. Some of its stories, such as those highlighting controversial medical cures, have been criticized by British scientists and doctors.
But it also contains excellent reporting on a range of stories in the U.S., U.K., and around the world. In a number of cases, you will find better and more insightful reporting of the current campaign than in many of the more respectable American papers.
Plus, if you need a break from the bleakness of the news, a small dose of the more frivolous stories can be welcome relief.
