Daily Mail to receive anti-semitism apology at bottom of page 57 below slippers advert


The Daily Mail will receive an apology after it was accused of anti Semitism, though it will have to look very hard indeed to find the correction.

The Mail was accused of printing an article with a ‘hint’ of anti Semitism by the Jewish Chronicle and Huffington Post, before demanding an apology from those making the claim.

Fortunately, other papers have insisted the Daily Mail has kindly set a precedent in how to deal with articles that print potential falsehoods.

A spokesperson for one paper alleging anti-Semitism on the part of the Daily Mail told us, “They will find their apology, in font size four, right at the bottom of a page containing an advertorial for slippers for old people with flat feet.”

“It’s what they would have wanted.”

“It wouldn’t be right to apologise as prominently as we did when making our sensational accusation, it wouldn’t be fair on the Daily Mail to do the right thing.”

“My mum told me treat others as you would like to be treated, and the Mail buries apologies like no other organisation on the planet – so we’re proud to do the same to them.””

“I hope they appreciate it.
