Enough with the Dubai bashing
A Dubai bashing article pushes Kipp over the edge

It’s no secret that the world’s media enjoys watching Dubai squirm under the weight of its debts, and we understand that Dubai bashing articles get lots of hits on the internet. But we genuinely thought that the spate of Dubai bashing articles, which feature the same old criticisms and statistics, was over. We were wrong.
The Daily Mail published yet another article about Dubai, which isn’t a big deal, except that the article features nothing new.
Kipp isn’t in the habit of defending any city, nation or company, but we’re a little tired of articles that criticize for criticism’s sake. If you’re going to criticize, at least use some facts.
The irony is that there is no shortage of facts about Dubai that a journalist can use to write a sound critical piece; but for some inexplicable reason, most journalists choose to stick to the same old story.
If the Daily Mail journalist had done some serious digging, she would’ve found a story about Dubai worth writing about.
