How to end Daily Mail style false flag news
This Wednesday, the front page of the Daily Mail looked like this.
When the story turned out to be less than accurate, the paper printed a tiny apology not many readers would have noticed.
It doesn’t take a genius to see the problem here.
The damage that was done by the original false story far outweighs the pitiful reparation achieved by the correction. However, what if the law forced the paper to give the same prominence to the clarification as it did for the original story?
In the case of flag-gate, what if the Daily Mail apology, by law, had to look something like this.
I’m pretty sure if that was a rule, then press standards would improve dramatically overnight.
