Lavar hmm knowing the Sun the Nick eating babies photo will be next week *grin*. (In a Tarmac Adam Tshirt I expect).
Yes it's always a strange position to be in, at the end of the day, I tend to try and weigh up all the bits and pieces, media 'editing' Nicks memory and did I ever witness this. It's never an enjoyable thing when it's friends and work mates. The only thing that it does for me is create extra work, people asking, emails etc. All of them are big boys and have to say and do what they think.
Remember my area on a day to day basis is media and our file on mis quotes, chopped up interviews, down right lies is rather chunky . *GRIN* and yep Anne I agree the headline triggered 'stuff' with more people and I think it's the word 'accuses'. Been a long while since people stopped me on the street and asked about this sort of thing.
It's also rare (and I am talking about thousands of interviews etc in our files) that the Finns are betrayed as anything other then good guys, so maybe it's a new angle, 'good guys' rarely make Page 3 of The Sun, dirt will always be what the public wants & I'd say that's what they needed for the story.
I wonder though if this sort of stuff will stop Crowded House ever playing shows, I've got no idea, but just a thought. I'm sure it doesn't improve the odds.
