I despise the tabloid press.
They go for the sensationalist, cheap headlines and don’t give a damn for truth and honesty. Their motto is ‘sales above all else’ and many an honest upright citizen has been trampled by their voracious appetite for lurid headlines.
I am sad to say that I have been the victim of their latest sensationalism.
Imagine my horror and disgust when I read this cheap nasty bit of gutter journalism yesterday.
I normally only read that site just to make sure that it is still there, and yesterday, I was wading through the lies, the innuendo and the fifth rate writing when I came across this line –
“I’m the daughter of a USaphobe”
Apart from the fact that there is no such word, this is obviously a pathetic attempt to slur my name by making me out to be some kind of hater of Americans.
Of course, my regular readers will know that this is a blatant lie. I know that Americans have their little foibles. There is the fact that they can’t spell. We all know that they have no sense of humour. We have all been irritated with their loud grating accent and their complete inability to take a joke, but apart from those minor factors, Americans are lovely people. I welcome Americans with
loaded open arms.
I am of course initiating legal proceedings against that rag.
I shall demand a full and contrite apology, and compensation commensurate with my standing in the community.
Until then, if she wants me to any babysitting, she can fucking whistle.
