A journalist at British paper the Daily Mail wrote a piece about what she thought was a case of Googlebombing. It wasn’t. But now the journalist in question is (kind of) a victim of a Googlebomb herself (I know she’s not really, but you have to love what now happens if you search for her name).

This is one of the funniest things I’d read in ages. As for Daily Mail & Digg - it’s just another reason not to go there...

Anything that results in a Daily Mail journo being linked to the word ’idiot’ deserves a healthy sphinn in my book.Now, just to get ’Bigoted Rag’ to link to said newspaper...*Disclaimer - I don’t really think that Daily Mail journos are idiots and I would like to state that the paper itself is a bastion of fairness and equality*

Ah, chucklicious. I love the Reg’s statement of sympathy:"It’s the scrag-end of August and news is hard to come by, especially for the <cite>Daily Mail</cite>: the Royal Family are away badger racing, paedophiles have retreated to their subterranean volcano lairs and even swan-roasting Albanian asylum seekers have gone south to avoid the Global-Warming-Chaos of the British summer."

LOL this DailyMail ’factbox’, mistaking plain old SEO for Googlebombing, makes one feel sooo dirty & sordid!http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/08/22/article-1048296-0262F62200000578-548_468x233.jpg

I guess that really we’re the ones who have been made to look like idiots - mistaking the Daily Mail for a real newspaper...

That’s a pretty in-depth and high-brow article for the Sun to be honest.I’m guessing it was on their political page in the actual paper.
