The Mail Hates Books

Daily MailThe Daily Mail recycles old content today, in another story about how fiction for children is corrupting the poor things. The paper reports what were probably some thoughtful words spoken by Anne Fine at the Edinburgh Book festival, then characteristically spins them out into an unwarranted attack on violent and sexualised kidlit, Patrick Ness yet again included. The sight of such a very fine newspaper simply reprinting old sidebars is a very sad one – who would have thought the quality of journalism at that organ had sunk so low?
