Having championed the ageism case of Countryfile presenter Miriam O’Reilly and excoriating the BBC for a “slapdash approach to recruitment”, the Daily Mail has been forced to amend the wording of one of its own job vacancies.

An advert in the Media Guardian inviting applications for a year-long course at the Mail’s own trainee reporters scheme originally read:

“We are looking for bright, sharp, intelligent young writers”

However this was amended to, y’know, comply with the law and stuff:

“We are looking for bright, sharp, intelligent writers”

The Mail has previously appealed for individuals featured in finance case study features to be “preferably female and in their 20s”.
