I know getting basic facts right is not that popular these days amongst journalists but you might want to write a post about the correlation between that and the declining readership of “real” newspapers.

The scarey thing is how the nonsense that gets cut and pasted then becomes a “fact”.

In that case, it can’t be considered harmless if you are wrong.

The fake account and the “victimizing” of Morgan might be a setup. He recently got an apology for misleading statements in testimony which were not in his book, but he really didn’t have a lot to say about hacking when he asked for that apology, did he.

I truly doubted Morgan had never known hacking was going on, but this blogger in the Guardian has some meat to chew on. reading that, it is in Morgan’s best interest to ensure people are distracted so he DOESN’T lose his job.

Otherwise it’sjust rumormongoring which should be beneath a real journalist.
