Bad Parent's Anti-Porn Campaign to Block Championing Newspaper?

The Daily Mail, nominally a newspaper, but in reality a printed testament to "things were better in the past'. In recent months it's had a campaign against porn (especially online porn), because 'we never had it in our day' (if you exclude the 'free love' of the 60s, and the fact the 70's are all but synonymous with porn). 

There's just one problem with the Daily Mail - while it's print edition might be a bastion of 'right wing 'blame' culture, the newspapers website only thinks of the children when they're in a sexy outfit, or with a bikini-clad mother.

The Daily Mail's website, is in short, very sexually oriented.

[HoM] Foil-hatted IRCop's Inferiority Tantrum

Some great amusement with the newest “Hall of Morons” entry. This is someone that should really know better, but clearly has trouble differentiating reality from wild-assed claims with no evidence. Alas, Seethe42 has a particularly strong Reality Distortion Field around him.

It’s no surprise then that when the channel took the political compass test a month ago, he was the only less right-wing than a Canadian drug-addict. There’s some message about believing crap and being right wing somewhere, but I’m not going to bother with it.
