British tabloid newspaper the Daily Mail — which runs the most read online newspaper in the world, Mail Online — is facing criticism from parts of the British press and politicians following its story criticizing the late father of the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Ed Miliband.
The paper published an article on Sept. 28 by journalist Geoffrey Levy questioning whether the beliefs of Miliband’s father — Ralph Miliband, a Belgian-born Jewish academic and a leading Marxist thinker who died in 1994 — influenced the Labour leader.
