About Me

My photo
I'm a journalist, ex-national papers, now working in what we call "new" media.

Rebarbative though it can be, the Mail retains the ability to surprise, pleasantly. There was the Stephen Lawrence case, of course, in which it led the way in exposing racism and identifying the probable killers. For all its liberal principles, the Guardian has never managed anything so brave or important.

Now it gives prominence to Italy's shameful treatment of gypsies, in a report by the excellent Sue Reid, a Fleet Street veteran who keeps alive the tradition of in-depth investigation and reporting. This isn't a story that will strike much of a chord with many Mail readers (take a look at the comments) so the Mail deserves respect for commissioning it and running it so prominently.

On the other hand, there is a marked contrast between this story and the Mail's attitude towards gypsies in Britain...
