    Daily ULTIMATE Fail

    This story is absolute gold. Absolute. There is nothing these guys don't miss.

    Family Guy causes outrage as characters high-five in celebration of 9/11 atrocities | Mail Online


    Now there are spoilers for the actual show below, so don't read on if you don't want to know.....


    Brian and Stewie travel back in time to the time of the pilot episode, and while there Brian tips his old self off about 9/11. In the present he is a hero for stopping the attacks, but as a result of it, Bush was never re-elected, moved back south and started a Civil war which led to nuclear war across the whole of America with millions dying. So the pair decide to go back, put things right so 9/11 does happen and the world goes back to how it is and without the loss of millions of lives. They succeed and after coming back check the internet to find 9/11 has happened.
    They then high five and even say (the part the DM obviously missed!) "boy that high five could look bad if taken out of the context it was meant in"

    So what do the DM focus on.....that's right, the high five, taken out of context.
    Don't get me wrong, perfect bit of advertising for Family Guy, but a TINY bit of journalism would have meant this story wouldn't even make any website.

    As Brian Griffin would say..."wow"

    Daily fail strikes again.

    Will they ever actually write something worth reading? Probably not....

    suprised they haven't got on to the episode of South Park.

    They make an alliance with al qaeda & osama bin laden because new jersey are taking over the USA. When Al Qaeda come to help them they start crashing planes in to the new jersey people.

    Don't be silly - the journalist in question knew perfectly well the real story - it isn't that he failed to do his 'due diligence' but rather that he chose to show the incident this way. Which is my biggest argument against the Daily Fail - it isnt sloppy journalism, it is a cynical attempt to stir up trouble..

    It seems that the DM has turned in to a depressing parody of itself.

    My annoyance is that the bleeding heart liberal/lefties love to jump all over the DM as soon as they say that... shock horror... something might need fixing in this country - "What? The DM have said that mass immigration and open boarders might not be a good thing? Racists...", "They said what? There actually might be people taking the welfare state for a ride? Pfft... fat cat Tory-supporting DM readers!"

    However... stupid lazy journalism like this does nothing to help their cause! For once the DM reserves to be battered for this one!
