  1. Apologise? I don’t see any apology. An acknowledgement that their headline was misleading, but no regret or apology.

    Yet, Andrew Pierce remains employed by the Mail?

  3. That was my reading of it too. “we love our readers too much to ever have to say sorry!” HA HA HA what a total fail.

    Fine make sure consultant editor Andrew Pierce is branded a liar and stirrer and should be hounded out of all publications as a person on no morals, honour or seeker of the truth.

    This man attempted to make out the David Cameron had lied to the public…jail him.

    What do we expect from the Daily liar…more of the same.

    No change there eh….CONTROL THE MEDIA

    All the more galling given that the odious Christian Institute and Christian Concern sites have been clucking over this fabrication for days, as if it were true,

    1. And they will continue to cluck over it and will never acknowledge that even the Daily Mail disavowed it. This is how Fox News, the Daily Mail and other right-wing “news” organizations work. Lie through your teeth, let the lie spread like wildfire and then, at some later point, quietly acknowledge that your reporting wasn’t 100% accurate and move on like nothing happened. Did you hear how Fox News announced the Obama was personally funding the “Museum of Muslim Culture” (which doesn’t exist) while the government was shut down? The news host that “reported” it got it from a comedy site. Did she go onto her show the next day and admit her stupid mistake? HELL NO! She went on Twitter in the middle of the night and said that she had relied on “flawed research”. Yet, even today, right-wing sites are continuing to promote the story. See how that works?

      “….clucking over this fabrication for days, as if it were true….”

      They’ve been doing that with the Bible for nearly 2000 years.

  6. So, another totally invented piece of scum journalism. When is the British public going to wake up and stop buying this trash? I remember the embarrassing outpourings of grief at Princess Diana’s death while she was being pursued by paparazzi. Yet it was the British public who, every time she appeared on a front page, rushed to buy a copy. The people get the press they deserve.

    And this is supposed to pass for self-regulation of the press? Ironic that today in Parliament, Maria Miller discussed the implementation of a new charter on just this very topic. The Mail should be shutdown along with the Telegraph.

  8. Even if you don’t believe in press regulation, this is a perfect example of the need for it

    The Daily mail should face crippling £5 million fines for every time they blatantly make crap up or attack innocent people (Stephen Gately)

    They’ll be out of business in days

  9. Something written by Andrew Pierce turns out to be homophobicphobia based lies. Who’d have thought it, eh?

  10. The Daily Heil. Again. They seem to think that simply promulgating lies in their filthy rag makes them true.

  11. Written by Andrew Pierce. Yes of course it would have been

    I’ll keep repeating this – we need to go for the advertisers who provide the finance for this Nazi publication. I checked the Daily Mail website and noticed that Dolmio were all over the homepage. I am still waiting for a reply from them, but I’ll push on challenging every advertiser to explain why they associate with this newspaper. fancy sending in some emails aswell?

    I wish Pink News would apologize for running Daily Mail articles as if they are factual.

    1. Benjamin Cohen 9 Oct 2013, 12:51am

      We ran the original story as a denial from David Cameron not as a factual piece
