Can anyone become a Mirror journalist?

I know the Grauniad has its collection of Labour supporting ostriches on CIF – and at least it makes schoolboy and spelling errors.

However, consider this and particularly `Everyone knows you never write the Germans off – unless it’s at Eurovision – so their presence in the World Cup semi-final should come as no surprise.`

I see, so the fact that Germany WON the Eurovision just two short months ago doesn’t count?!

You do have to wonder to yourself what sort of research goes into these stories – and how much of it is just blind prejudice. You have to also wonder at what level of ignorance the writer holds of the reader and how that is reflected elsewhere in the paper.
