The New Yorker tries to understand the Daily Mail:
Nor is the Mail easy to resist. Last year, its lawyers shut down a proxy site that allowed liberals to browse Mail Online without bumping up its traffic. (…)
A Briton’s view of the Mail is a totemic indicator of his sociopolitical orientation, the dinner-party signal for where he stands on a host of other matters. (…)
This retrograde mind-set has recently been notable in the Mail’s insistence that marriage should be solely between a woman and a man.
