Makes you wonder how much, if any, of what we see, hear and read in the media can be taken at face value.
How true, guess the only thing we can trust is the Internet!

I had two serious accidents as a teenager both of which hit the local press. They got the details totally wrong both times! On the second occasion they even managed to call me by three totally different names in three consecutive paragraphs!!!

Years later I had occasion to have dealings with press and TV over a period of several years garnering publicity for a charity I was involved with. My press releases were sh*t hot, I virtually wrote the story for them, gave them locations, dates, times, lists of photo opportunities, the headline story, relevant background info, the lot. I had 100% success in getting reporters, photographers and TV out to events I publicised and lots of compliments from editors etc. along the lines of "if only everybody wrote press releases like you do"

T'was all very well but they still managed to get it wrong virtually every time even though I'd laid it out on a plate for them!!!

Don't believe what you read in the papers, it's usually a load of twaddle

Any update on the boat?
They must not have just left it there to be a potential hazard for other shipping?
I'm curious how much damage there really was?
