Daily Mail readers more worried about Google than housing market crash

I’m sure I read somewhere that ‘If news editors are looking for something new with which to strike fear into the heart of middle England, online privacy could be answer.’

This Saturday, the print edition of the Daily Mail belatedly picked up on the ‘Google Streetview car in the UK’ story and plonked it on the front page.

The mid-market tabloid also put the story onto its web site, complete with explanatory graphics. The story has prompted 84 comments.

On the same day another story was posted, headlined House prices falling at fastest rate for 50 years. This one has only 38 comments...
