a brief analysis of the daily mail’s meghan markle “REVELATIONS”

surely, SURELY we are deep enough in our daily mail master class to recognize that the man behind the curtain has no clothes, right?

but yeah, anyhoo, here we are at exhibit ZZZ

given that the daily mail almost EXCLUSIVELY pedals in a genre perhaps best described as News From Elsewhere (with the exception of their EXCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVES which always have EXCLUSIVE plastered all over them so they are adequately distinguished from the pack of unoriginal content), i don’t know why i always give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that their articles are doing something other than killing time.

you know who was there though? caroline kennedy.
