Sun's Soaraway Lies
In the unlikely event that any of my readers buy The Sun, could they tell me whether a clarification similar to that below has appeared in that paper?
"Monday's front page stated that the winner of Britain's Got Talent, 14 year old George Sampson, has been told by doctors that he must never dance again, owing to a serious spinal condition.
Some readers may have concluded from this that George Sampson has a serious spinal condition and has been told by doctors that he must never dance again.
To avoid any misunderstanding, we must make it clear that the 14 year old break dancer does not have a serious spinal condition, has not been forbidden to dance and is as fit as a butcher's dog.
Furthermore, he is about to top the bill on a national tour where he will perform back-flips, spin on his head and land heavily on his back on a hard surface.
We trust this clears up any confusion."
Dontcha just love 'em?
