It's a newspaper. It may be a shit newspaper, but nonetheless its primary function is to present news. That would, on the face of it, include trying to get exclusive articles and pictures.

What's the problem with that?

I'd agree with the Mail on that one. It was a feckin' huge lump of concrete and added to the story.

We need to concentrate on the ways the Mail is aberrant and obnoxious, not just keep pointing out that in many ways it is the same as every other newspaper.

It's a bit like picking on Hitler because of his moustache. Yes it's comic and all that, but it really isn't very high at all in his list of crimes.

But when they use the word 'first' what are they actually saying? Are they trying to claim they are the first paper to obtain the picture? If so it seems a bit of a sick competition. Or are they say it's the first picture to appear on their website/newspaper. Surely they could just use the headline 'Picture of dead....' without the need for the word 'first.'

None at all. As opposed to the Sun or Mirror, or any other shitty red-top, who would have us all believe the Muslims are to blame. Can't beat a spot of incitement.

Obviously the perpetrators of these crimes were given the correct discipline (non-confrontational) as children. That's why they grew up with the desire to cause harm to other people under the delusion of impunity.
