I can't read the DM Callistemon. It enrages me too much.
That's a shame GagaJo because, as was very articulately pointed out further upthread All forms of media have their bias and faults, and its good to be aware of it, but dismissing things because they appear in a particular source is worrying. And I think that's a much more mature and open minded way of looking at any media.
You're entitled to an opinion.
I used the DM or the Mirror et al with lower KS4 students. Nice and easy to understand. If I want nuance and higher level language use, I use The Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian etc.
I appreciate that a certain section of the population like their news gossipy and scandalous. I can't be bothered to wade through the brown stuff to get to the nugget of actual information.
