(Couldn't find a similar pre-existing thread on these lines. If there is one...damn.)

What about a thread about all the quirky, life affirming stories that were so good first time, that the Daily Mail decides to run them again. Not stories with a common theme (eg "New - Pictures of The Saturdays in short dresses"), but the same basic story with some different words/pictures.

For example, thirty years ago, bloke wanders around taking pictures of candid people. If his name was Mr Google, the angry mob would be collecting pitchforks. But it isn't. Chris Porsz decides to recreate the pictures with same people, 30 years later. Neat idea, but not unique.

26th May 2010, DM runs story.

18th May 2011, DM runs story. Many pics look familiar.

Still repeating a story almost exactly a year after first publication...could just be a one-off.
Except, it isn't. :(

Shipwreck Salvage company find UFO-like something on sonar.
Such as trivial story, no-one will spot if DM runs it twice. Will they ?

Oh fucking hell - there are dozens of these on the sadface thread. It's always the same shit, and the parent invariably gives the child a massive complex by making a huge issue out of it and forcing the child to pose for a photographer.

25th Feb 2009 - Lets laugh at people with funny names. Quote from Stan Still
'When I was in the RAF my commanding officer used to shout, "Stan Still, get a move on" and roll about laughing. It got hugely boring after a while.'

Feb 2011 - shocking. No Stan Still story !!

1st Feb 2012 - BBC credits person with made-up name. Lets laugh at people with funny names. Quote from Stan Still
'When I was in the RAF, my commanding officer used to shout: "Stan Still, get a move on" and roll about laughing,'

For once I agree with the interview. It got hugely boring after a while.

(Tempted to crosspost to the Daily Mail Hypocrisy thread, but...meh ! )

Story (and I use the term loosely) from today's (3rd September 2012) website

New pictures surface: Victoria's Secret catalogue from 1979

Notice that. "New". Must be a new definition of "new", as back on 25th April 2012, they had :

What Victoria’s Secret models looked like in 1979

Same "vintage" photos, different byline and text.

Lazy "Journalism". Especially as the website they plunder posted the pics from posted them back in June 2011.

Will divers finally get to the bottom of the Baltic Sea 'UFO' mystery? Team heads into the abyss to discover the origins of strange, 400-metre 'Millennium Falcon' object

As usual the answer to a DM headline question is "No". Unusually the DM admit it.
3rd September 2012
So was the 'Baltic Sea UFO' an alien saucer or an underwater Nazi base? No - it 'is just rocks', claim debunkers

Not that some Mailites believe in underwater rocks.
I don't understand why "people" are so afraid to tell the public the truth. There's so much lying in this world at the top it makes me sick.

in other words this is now in the hands of the government- classified. surely they could have came up with a better cover up- rock doesn't cut it for me unfortunetly.

25th June 2012
'knock-off' movies

But then again, the Daily Mail does promote Richard Littlejohn as "a journalist", so obviously they know about misrepresentation.

Good spot, Arnold.

So, if form holds, in 3 days we should have an "article" by the improbably names Cosmo Landesman.

Experiencing déjà vu now 'at epidemic levels'

DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Déjà vu, from French, literally "already seen", is the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has been experienced in the past and scientists have identified a 57% increase in those spooky moments amongst Daily Mail readers...

The Door to Hell. Take a look inside a giant hole in the desert which has been on fire for more than 40 YEARS

12th Sept 2012
The giant desert crater known as The Door to Hell which has been on fire for more than FORTY YEARS

Same pictures. Same phenomenon. Virtually the same text. SAME FERKING AUTHOR!

Credit where its due : all of the Top Comments have spotted this recycling, and are calling the DM on it. eg "Slow day? You did this same article in July. What next, John Lennon's been shot?"

More outrage as newspaper rages against the sexualisation of young girls as they repeat the story about La Hurley's range of bikini swimwear for young girls but this time with lots of of material for the kiddy fiddlers.
