Hey, writers cost money. This way a single editor and a research monkey can take up entire pages worth of content, and make it seem important.

You sheeple, don't you understand? Writers cost money, and without ad revenue...they cost the paper money, and that costs execs and editors money. Real money. Proper money, even.

At the dawn of the world wide web making web pages that looked as much like actual newspapers as possible was a thing, albeit a rather nerdy thing.

And then everyone switched to sucking at blogging.

why the fake headline front page?  too lazy to look up the scanned front page in the archive?  or is the content meant to provide some important retcon to a modern conservative talking point?

Obviously, the answer is "we switched timelines somewhere along the way."

I wonder if they'll reprint some of their other coverage of fascists.

It might have been, but the guy in the office who actually knows what those words mean has Corona, and the rest of the staff are still unsure how to write anything, especially with all the pubs closed.

I must now doubt the existence of the Daily Fail thanks to reporting by the Daily Fail.

Meh.

I'm not expending any effort to research a defense of the Mail, but that looks like they're playing, "what if tabloids in 1945 were like those today."

I hear that sometimes a coronavirus infection can cause cognitive deficits.

That is what they were doing, and like true idiots they printed that disclaimer snippet inside, not on the front page.
