Absolutely classic example in the Daily Mail of what Aussies call a 'beat-up' aka 'making a mountain out of a molehill', for profit.
Not asylum seekers this time but that old stand-by, 'muslims'.
'Muslims outraged at police advert featuring cute puppy sitting in policeman's hat', reads the headline. Read the text and it's one local councilor. So the headline should actually read 'Muslim outraged at police advert featuring cute puppy sitting in policeman's hat'.
Kindof makes a big difference don't you think?
Kudos to the Mail though, managing to hit numerous buttons with both 'cute puppy' and 'muslims' in the same headline. A certain kind of evil, McKenzie-ite genius.
Postscript: I actually bothered to post a comment pointing out the difference between 'muslims' and 'muslim'. Not published. Needless to say, the Daily Hate doesn't publish any standards for comments, so no idea which 'term' or 'condition' I may have breached. One for the regulators?
