From “Ode to Love XIX: You Racist, Homophobic Bitch”

By Marianne Morris.

I walk home with this paranoia mounting, the shopping bags

[…] a regular trick the Mail uses, too. Along with the bait-and-switch articles, where being indignant about one subject wildly steers into being indignant about another, where utterly unsupportable – or even downright untrue – statements are made, a contradictory line is added at the very bottom. It’s designed as a Get Out Of Jail, a way of justifying what comes before. But what comes before is designed to make it irrelevant. The Mail reader is supposed to be so incensed by this point […]
