if they get to some topic you know something about they
usually get it wrong on some particular detail(s)?>>
not usually . Always.
It gives one pause to think that their flair for getting things wrong
permeates all the other items which they report. All the items which you
cannot correct from personal knowledge.
I used to fly gliders. Gliders regularly land at places other than
airports,in farmers fields etc as a matter of general course. Every
newspaper report always headlines `GLIDER CRASHES`.
When I was Secretary of my Gliding Club I personally contacted the editors
of the local papers, radio staion etc., and suggested that if there was an
incident I could give them the correct story.. Not one of them ever did.
Its just easier to run a GLIDER CRASHES headline than to take the trouble
to report things correctly.
