When something sounds too good to be true…
…it usually is.
I say this apropos to nothing in particular, other than to suggest this well-worn saw from trading standards officers is one that, though they may scoff, journalists should always bear in mind. Particularly if they’ve authored a barely literate book about how gullible other journalists are. Anyone noticed how many holes there are in this flat earth of ours these days? Perhaps we should ask someone, maybe a publicity-seeking MP who’s not a “l33t hax0r“, to look into them. Oh, they already have.
Personally, I never believe anything I read in the press unless it has the Johann Hari Stamp of Intellectual Profile Approval™ on it.
