They might use Australian subs all the time on what remains of Fleet Street, but underneath they really do think we are ignorant peasants.
Roy Greenslade, bless him, has given some stick to The Mail on Sunday for a stupid and insensitive piece of coverage of our bushfires. The paper ran a picture of a fire truck driving away from a maelstrom of smoke and flame under the heaadline “Er, Bruce…the fire’s the other way!” Greenslade’s comment: “an insensitive way to report on a tragedy”.
“Memo to MoS editor Peter Wright: Er, would this be a good time to explore subbing being outsourced to Australia?
UPDATE: Mumbrella has been on to the Mail on Sunday editor asking for an apology and explanation. See the post here.
