The Daily Mail has long held the belief that Facebook is evil and the obvious cause of many atrocities. Now with half the UK population having signed up to Facebook, the newspaper has decided that banning it is probably not feasible.
Instead, they have announced a campaign to fund an exorcism, with the aim of eradicating the evil from the networking site.
The Mail has held up a flaming torch to the nefarious effect of Facebook over several years. A quick search on their website brings up over 4000 references to Facebook, many in a negative light. But in spite of all the evidence they have published showing that Facebook causes murders / steals your money / gives you cancer / encourages paedophiles, The Mail has now decided that pushing for a ban would not be popular.
Today they launched what they called 'Help The Mail Cast Out Facebook's Demons', a campaign the newspaper says it will be running over the coming weeks.
A spokesperson for The Daily Mail told us: "We are hoping to elicit help from the Church of England's Deliverance Ministry as we understand they have a certain amount of expertise in this area."
He went on; "The original plan was to set up a Facebook Group to promote the fund, but we have now decided it's probably not appropriate."
