The Daily Mail
The demand for newspapers not afraid to print the facts is growing. A Left Wing campaign in Britain says that those papers are popular because fear and division sells. Apart from attention grabbing headlines, the articles are factual. The left-wing campaign wants those facts censored. They are boycotting advertisers in an attempt to force the papers to close down.
A new campaign is targeting advertisers in a bid to shut down newspapers that report crime committed by migrants, rather than covering it up.
The Stop Funding Hate campaign is urging companies to pull advertising from the Sun, the Daily Mail and the Express, claiming that they use “fear and division to sell more papers”. The campaign’s founder, Richard Wilson, called the newspapers’ reporting of migrants “toxic”.
We really should add the word toxic to the Whaleoil dictionary. I suggest we give it this definition:
Toxic the quality or state of being true
” The toxic article revealed how many German women were raped and sexually molested during the concert”
” He was a toxic blogger not afraid to point out that the emperor had no clothes on.”

Today’s face of the day Jessie Gallan is 109 and has a little secret that she is willing to share with us all. It is her secret for living so long.
I love how media always ask people who reach 100+ what their secret is because their answers are often fascinating and Jessie is no exception. Based on what she says I have not got many years left to look forward to so best I swing from the chandeliers while I still can!
Today’s face of the day lost her job. Can you guess why?
A) For hurting a patient
B) For turning up late to work
C) For having an affair with a Doctor
D) For praying for a co-worker
E) For swearing at a patient.
The DaIly Mail has provided categorical proof that coke and meth don’t help you lose weight…or even ketamine.
Stripped to his grubby shorts and polo shirt, this sordid image of ‘Crystal Methodist’ Paul Flowers shows him doing what he loves best – entertaining rent boys and apparently snorting cocaine.
Holding court in his rent-free Methodist Church house, the disgraced minister and former Co-op Bank chairman is shown for the first time indulging in the addiction that brought about his downfall and wrecked his stewardship of the ‘caring’ bank. Read more »
Via Newstalk ZB website:
A family with four generations of in-breeding has been discovered in New South Wales, The Daily Mail reports.
It’s a case described as one of the worst in Australia’s history.
Children of what’s been called a horrifying incest ‘cult’ have been found living deformed, filthy and mute in scenic valley south-west of Sydney.
Brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts had sex with each other for decades.
Children were severely disabled with one girl, nine, unable to read or talk.
She was unable to bathe herself and did not know what toilet paper was.
I bet there’s a few cold sweats and paranoid head turning going on down in the depths of central Manawatu. The Valiants, Falcons and Kingswoods will be getting packed for a hasty mass exodus as we speak.
Len Brown’s rushed withdrawal process in lovemaking seems to be making a come-back world wide.
The Daily Mail reports:
Charliegh Avent never has to remember to take the Pill. She and husband Paul don’t have a supply of male contraceptives in their bedside cabinets either.
In fact the couple, who’ve been together for seven years, don’t make any sort of special preparations before they make love.
Because they’ve chosen to rely on the oldest contraceptive system there is: the withdrawal method, in which the man withdraws from the woman’s body just before climax occurs.
In an age when there have never been more options to prevent pregnancy, it would be easy to assume that Charliegh’s approach is rare. Read more »
In the UK Labour MPs get done for nicking coin, Tory MPs are always in the back of a boy or some other sex scandal. And so it erupts on the UK.
We started our Saturday by paying our respects to Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., the hard-charging US Army general whose forces smashed the Iraqi army in the 1991 Gulf War. He died aged 78. At
The Standard 2012 Worst Political Blog Mike Smith is told some home truths about long term grass-roots Labour families heading for the Greens. A quick vid on how to put out a boat fire the Kiwi way is next, followed by a vote for Best Minister. The winner, at 52%, is Judith Collins. The Whale Week That Was summarised all the stories this blog covered in the previous seven days. A quite active Saturday Debate (for the time of year especially) led a post calling for nominations for Best Political Blog. Those who see WOBH as any sort of threat to them (and those that don’t too), should take heed of this Malcolm Tucker quote: “marshal all the media forces of Darkness to hound them to an assisted suicide”. A CNN piece showing Teachers in Utah taking a class on gun use shows some common sense around the gun debate. A reader has taken yesterday’s US Fiscal Cliff graphic and created one for New Zealand – great work. As Cameron Slater predicted from the outset, the Aussie Hoax DJs will not face charges. The NZ Herald continues to amuse – this time a car crashed into a poll. The blog then introduces us to two sexy taxidermists showing you don’t have to look like a front row forward to deal with dead animals. And you’d think we’re picking on an incompetent NZ Herald, and you would be right. This time they have Jesse Ryder beating himself at Eden Park in Wellington. Then a hilarious story about a Queensland woman who fell into the longdrop and was there for two hours before being discovered by her husband. Turns out that during the Falklands War the French tried to send missiles to Argentinia behind Margaret Thatcher‘s back. Commerce first eh? The last post of the day highlights a report of a man holding up a Countdown Supermarket with a hammer. Our readers get fired up about the idea of hammer banning.
The Daily Mail had this headline on their article of 16 August about Kim Kardashian:
She of course wasn’t holding a “huge rifle gun”, it was a simple over and under shotgun for skeet shooting…depsite the Mail repeating their error in the story:
In one snap Kim is pictured toting a large rifle as she describes a skeet shooting adventure with step-father Bruce Jenner, brother Rob and sister Kylie.
Uhmmm…no…that is a shotgun…idiots!
