Superfast “supermoon” U-turn by the Daily Mail

I realise that the rolling news agenda can change extremely quickly in today’s media saturated world, but even this is slightly dramatic…

Daily Mail, 9 March 2011:

Daily Mail, 11 March 2011:

Full credit to this week’s Private Eye magazine for drawing attention to this delightful contrast in positions taken by the Daily Mail across a three-day period in mid-March. From “the Internet’s lunar-tics” and “absolute nonsense” to “Science & Technews in double-quick time. (As an aside, it is worth noting that the 11 March piece was one of the first stories posted to the Mail’s website concerning the devastating events in Japan.)
