The Daily Mail and a white man

When the Daily Mail approached a father to use footage of his children on the Mail Online website, it probably wasn’t expecting his forthright response.

Shut down

With much of the country getting shut down by snowmageddon, lots of families are enjoying playtime in the flurries. Composer Nick Harvey and his two children were among them.

But soon after Harvey shared the footage online, the Daily Mail came calling. And it was their turn to get shut down.

Daily Mail asks for footage and gets shut down.


Harvey’s response soon went viral, with fellow Twitter users branding him a hero for putting the Mail in its place.

Not all heroes wear capes.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
