The Daily Mail hates the BBC (and they own a big chunk of ITN, competitors to BBC News, though they never admit to that conflict of interest...) so that's why they take comments made as a joke and try to spin it as a genuine BBC policy, and why lots of typical Daily Mail readers believe it and post comments calling for the BBC to be scrapped.
