Lohse July 14, 2014 at 7:37 am One is becoming inured to to Guardian standards of reporting as the DT completes it’s transformation to the Leftygraph. The paper has little to commend it any more. Surreptitious Evil July 14, 2014 at 7:38 am Okay, calling the winner wrong is a matter of deadlines and we all know this happens. But inventing the violence? Won’t pay Murdoch for the Times (or anything else), Telegraph is now rubbish, even a dive towards the left at the Independent is marred by a gross lack of realism in reporting. Where is there to go? Bloke in Germany July 14, 2014 at 7:54 am “Argentina victory mars violent celebration” would have been better. Matthew L July 14, 2014 at 8:51 am Eh, they just recycled a headline from May 1982. Bloke with a Boat July 14, 2014 at 8:58 am More likely a place holder that someone forgot about and it got published. dearieme July 14, 2014 at 10:26 am Shouldn’t a placeholder be something that doesn’t embarrass you if things go wrong? “Chocolate and cats”: that sort of thing.

Surreptitious Evil July 14, 2014 at 11:58 am The dead-tree legacy press is intent on suicide, so get your news on the internet. With its emphasis on robust fact-checking, elimination of personal bias, minimising sensationalism and rational discussion, the internet is clearly the place to go to for news. Nah – it’s entertainment. Occasionally informative entertainment, certainly but although it sometimes meets the timeliness requirement for “news”, it rarely reaches the other levels. Which is understandable – you need to pay people to generate proper content and the internet is still trying to sort out how to make that one work. bloke (not) in spain July 14, 2014 at 7:57 pm “Nah – it’s entertainment….etc” Sorry, You lost me there, SE.
