The Daily Mail is a British daily newspaper.

In 2017, the leftist Wikipedia banned the right-wing Daily Mail, then the United Kingdom's second biggest-selling daily newspaper, from being used as a source in Wikipedia, after a vote with 77 (mostly anonymous) participants. The newspaper was claimed to be unreliable, but no statistics were given in support of this claim. Daily Mail wrote that this occurred just before the newspaper “was shortlisted for 15 awards at the British Press Awards, the news industry’s Oscars. (Indeed, as we shall see, the Mail has an enviable record on accuracy.) […] Curiously, though it has now placed a ban on this paper, the website remains happy to use the state propaganda outlets of many of the world’s most repressive and autocratic Left-wing dictatorships as a source for information. […] In 2015, with our sister website MailOnline, the Mail published more than half a million stories; IPSO upheld complaints against two of them. By way of comparison, five articles in The Times had complaints of one kind or another upheld against them, along with four in the Daily Express, and ten published by the Telegraph group.[1]
