Daily Mail snow slip up

December 29, 2010

As Zelo Street has already eloquently discussed in Stateside Snow And Slanted Reporting part 1 and part 2, The Mail has done a rather impressive turnaround regarding the snow in the US.  This quick post is merely to illustrate the poins made in those two blog posts.

Reported on 28th December, So how come America copes? UK grinds to a halt in inches of snow, but US is back to work after THREE FOOT deluge

Reported on 29th December, New York’s demolition derby: City clean-up crews wreck cars in frantic bid to clear streets amid apocalyptic post-storm scenes

Generic Daily Mail Reporter is credited with both articles.  Given the massive u-turn, I wonder if it’s a pseudonym for a moonlighting cabinet minister.

    The Daily Mail – consistent as ever…

    The Express tried to do a similar thing the other week: http://www.minority-thought.com/2010/12/snow-excuse.html. They moan about how other countries are coping excellently and we’re blundering badly. Typical parochial nonsense.
