I'm skeptical. There's no such thing as a news organization that searches for the truth or applies critical thinking to its stories. This is all just a wonderful dream that's going to disappear as soon as my alarm clock goes off.

However, I wouldn't get too hopeful about the Daily Mail as a champion of rationality. I suspect this is more about industry politics and market share. The Mail regularly features uncritical reportage of the latest pseudoscientific and New Age fads (for instance, it serialized The Bible Code) not to mention getting half the proceeds from the premium-rate astrology phone service run by its resident astrologer Jonathan Cainer (see here).
