Episode 2.1. Confessions of The DM Reporter

 

 

 

 

Unlike Alan Partridge, Adam and Jo got a second season, and they use this first episode to talk to the anonymous author on long-running parody Twitter account DM Reporter about how he got started, what it is like trolling the Daily Mail for almost a decade, why he can’t stop and whether or not it is satire just to say crazy things that people people have up-voted.
