The Mirror is a UK daily tabloid newspaper. As with many tabloid newspapers the standards of journalistic reporting can sometimes be rather disappointing but a recent article regarding the issue of animals in circuses plumbs new depths of banality where impartiality appears not to be given a second thought. In fact, reading this particular article the reader could be forgiven that you have stumbled across an advertising feature paid for by an animal-rights group not the objective reporting of a national newspaper.

The article was written by journalist 
Federica Cocco and headlined "Circus animals: everyone wants to save them except these three Tory MPs". It was reporting the alleged ongoing controversy of a proposed ban in Britain of the use of wild animals in circus presentations.
