Er, won’t that have been in his job description??

Props to this honest hack, but is anyone surprised from the Grauniad?

“Richard Peppiatt admits producing fictional stories about celebrities and accuses [the Daily Star] of inciting ‘anti-Muslim’ tensions”

Reporting on his “take this job and shove it” letter to Richard Desmond, the Grauniad writes –

The reporter, who was once made to dress up in a burqa, now accuses the paper of inciting racial tensions and Islamaphobia. “You may have heard the phrase ‘the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil sets off a tornado in Texas’,” Peppiatt wrote to the proprietor, Richard Desmond, in a letter seen by the Guardian.

“Well, try this: ‘The lies of a newspaper in London can get a bloke’s head caved-in down an alley in Bradford.’ If you can’t see that words matter, you should go back to running porn magazines.”


Best book I’ve read on this – Flat Earth News by Nick Davies
