Daily mail pays damages to professor wrongly accused


Recommended Posts

I believed these tweets were real when I saw them. And was utterly appalled that a Cambridge professor was getting away with this. This was right in the middle of the Black Lives Matter protests. I believe (but can't verify 100%) David reported on this too. It's now clear this was a spoof of her account intended directly to cause the reaction in us that it did. It's a salient 'note to self ' to fact check more thoroughly....which is nearly impossible in this 'brave new world'

 

Daily Mail pays £25,000 to professor it falsely accused of inciting race war

Priyamvada Gopal reaches settlement over Amanda Platell column that was based on fake tweets

The Daily Mail has paid £25,000 to a Cambridge academic after the newspaper falsely accused her of inciting a race war.

Priyamvada Gopal reached the settlement with the news outlet and its sister website MailOnline after they published a column by Amanda Platell in which the journalist attributed a series of inflammatory quotes to the English professor.

In reality the quotes were fake and came from a mocked-up screengrab that had been circulating for some time among rightwing Twitter users.

On Friday, the Daily Mail issued a correction in which it said it had been wrong to imply, based on the fake tweets, that Gopal wanted to “incite an aggressive and potentially violent race war”, or “that she supports and endorses the subjugation and persecution of white people”.

The newspaper added: “Such comments were based on a tweet purportedly by Professor Gopal, which we have subsequently learnt was fake. We also partially quoted another tweet from Professor Gopal as saying: ‘White lives don’t matter.’ The tweet in fact continued: ‘As white lives.’ Professor Gopal’s actual view is that all lives should be valued.”

Platell’s false claims appeared in the Saturday edition of the Daily Mail, which is by far the biggest-selling edition of any print newspaper in Britain, with more than 1.5m sold every week. The apology appeared in a substantially smaller position in the newspaper’s corrections column on Friday.

In a statement, Gopal said: “I am pleased that the Mail has apologised for what it accepts were completely unfounded allegations. I have suffered appalling racist abuse myself, which made the publication of these allegations (and the increased abuse that followed) even more distressing. I am vigorously opposed to all forms of racism, and will continue to advocate and campaign for equal rights for everyone.”

As part of the agreement the Daily Mail has agreed to pay Gopal’s legal costs.

In June, Gopal told the Guardian how she was on the receiving end of a torrent of abuse after discussing attitudes to race in the UK. She said many of the abusive messages sent to her had been based on a flawed understanding of the nature of racism in the UK.

WHITE LIVES DON'T MATTER ... (as white lives)

 

These people are scum.   The whole lot of them.

They wish to damage white people, even the daily mail does.

They wish to damage anything good and natural.

Over in India they are pushing out all the muslims.

Every race tribe and creature prefers its own, even spiritual people prefer their own.

 

The only kind of creature that does not ... is a lying ***t who lives by stirring.

There were spoofs going around, but what she said was pretty much the same.

Shes a rich Indian Brahman hypocrite who hates British people & part of a coup in this country.

Why isnt she complaining about her own country that shits on its poor??
 

Just like Mcalpine, Jenner, Cliff Richard & all the other rotten c*nts she comes out smelling of roses.

I support free speech, but you should be prepared to face backlash.

The filthy insurgent bitch got promoted for inciting racial hatred.

Try walking up to a Tiger holding a placard "Lion lives matter" ... what will the tiger do to you?

 

All creatures on the Earth prefer their own.   The only ones who don't are ... are ... they've found a parasitical way to make some money through fear and promotion of the unnatural, i.e. journalists and "authors" and Islington people.

The whole lot of them in this story are in it together, the Mail, the authors, the lawyers ... all are the same, they are performing the traditional dance of smoke and mirrors.

 

Why are they attacking white people?
Why ... because they are the greatest people on this planet with the most advanced ... everything. 

And no it's not all "by accident", they earned it that's why the wolves are trying to convince them to they should commit suicide so that they wolves can take everything they earned.

But .. the real enemy are the white parasites, the Vth column located in Islington.

You know that's actually very fing interesting, because it explains why Islington has such a big chip on their shoulder, and that all their activities and agendas are really a form of revenge and there is nothing sincere in them.   Revenge for something that never happened.

There seems always to be a segment of human society which lives through parasitism, self-parasitism, or is parasited ... and has this low frequency energy that causes them to vomit on other people ... a disease that is contiagious.

Maybe.

 

I just want to be more careful with my facts in future before I get so riled and angry. That's all.

 

I don't want to go from falling for the elite shit to falling for made up shit intended to upset and cause even more division.

 

Doesn't mean I've gone shit lib. Far from it. Just want to make sure my eye is on the right enemy.
