There was an extraordinary rant by Paul Dacre, editor-in-chief of the Mail, at the London College of Communications last night. Roy Greenslade was there and gives a flavour of the attack on the BBC, Guardian, “the pinkish” Times and the Indy.
They form, it seems, the “subsidariat” of which the BBC is the worst part. It was a rare chance to hear the views of the man who has made the Mail so successful. His complaint was really that the BBC and his other targets failed to agree with the Daily Mail, Greenslade concludes.
