DMGT fined £225,000 for closing Teletext

The early ending of Teletext's public service content led to a £225,000 fine for its parent company Daily Mail & General Trust yesterday after Ofcom ruled it amounted to an "extremely serious breach" of obligations under the company's licence. The company stopped its loss-making news and sport coverage at the end of last year even though it had four years of its licence to run. The regulator said the decision had "caused and continues to cause serious and significant harm to consumers of this service generally".

John Rentoul: Second thoughts on foreign workers

I commented yesterday on the Daily Mail's front-page story, ripped off from Fraser Nelson (right) at Coffee House, that 98.5 per cent of net new jobs since 1997 had been taken by foreign-born workers.

John Rentoul: Why aren't we shocked

I didn't comment on the report in Saturday's Daily Mail about six foolish people who have had medical qualifications and who think that David Kelly was murdered, because (a) it was in the Daily Mail, and there are only so many untrue stories in the Daily Mail that one can rebut; (b) it was the same story that has appeared in the Daily Mail several times before; and (c) Oliver Kamm beat me to it.

Ian Burrell: The Daily Mail and the death of Stephen Gately

"What a cold and nasty piece of gutter journalism"...."This is an absolutely revolting article"...."Shame on you Jan Moir", are just a tiny selection of soundbites from the outpouring of outrage on the Daily Mail's website following an extraordinary piece by one of the paper's best-known columnists, suggesting that the death of the Boyzone singer was not by natural causes, as an official announcement had stated.

John Rentoul: Daily Mail and innumeracy

I do blog about subjects other than the best Labour prime minister. Well one other subject anyway, namely how wrong the Daily Mail is. Today, in its ideological bias it makes a statistical howler. It reports:

John Rentoul: Put it to the vote

Not every story in the Daily Mail is rubbish. And I hope I am not saying this just because it furthers the cause of the AJ4PM campaign, but Tim Shipman's report this morning is significant

John Rentoul: Blairs still not victims of property crash

I'll shut up about Tony Blair in a minute, or when the Daily Mail stops printing, er, economies with the actualité about him. But, once again, the poison machine has been denied the story it wants, namely: "Blairs victims of property crash."
