The Daily Mail Expose On Temple Elephants Is Shocking, And Wrong

As a Keralite, and a Hindu who has visited the temple on a few occasions, my reaction to this article would be bewildered amusement.But as a journalist and editor, my reaction is far more visceral.

Only some of them are cataloged above; all of them are examples of journalism so shockingly inept that they can be disproved given a functioning internet connection and a few minutes of time.
