Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
tbh, it's quite plain that most journos behaved with much more responsibility than their seniors, who were seeking to emphasize the most salacious and sale-able angles.

but the Sun and, indeed much of the tabloid press, had and still have form. The whole phone tapping affair is all about the distortion of news values at Sun/NotW and others where people's tragedies are simply fodder to be fed into the news cycle with no regard to the damage done to their lives

keep to the Fen Causeway

Well going back to my Leveson stats, Junior reporters appeared no more forgetful than those of other papers, and hence apparently dishonest through omission. it wasn't till you got to the senior ranks that there was any noticeable difference band then figures spiralled up rapidly out of control.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
