Hapless Mail journalist hoaxed over ISIS photo gets taken down by Twitter user

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Mail!)

Ted Thornhill – the hopelessly incompetent Mail Online senior reporter who was hoaxed by the false story about a non-existent ISIS fighter – has been desperately asking around social media in a vain attempt to try to save face:

ISIS MAIL 1

So full marks to @ruqxx for this excellent reply – which manages to say everything there needs to be said about the Mail when it comes to anything Islamic:

ISIS MAIL 2

.

Of course if Ted had done even a bit of research, he would have realised that the story about a supposedly white ISIS fighter joining ISIS because he missed the UCAS deadline for entry into university was a hoax.

Not least because the UCAS deadline closes on the 15th of January.
