It’s always amusing when the media’s narrative is thrown into disarray by facts.
The conclusion of the investigation into The Star appears to be just that.
The level of build-up suggested that the report, once it was released, would be second only to the FWA report into Craig Thomson.
Except, of course, it wasn’t. In fact, the report even took time to criticise the media – the executive summary goes so far as to quote the Media Alliance Code of Ethics and insinuated that certain parts of the media had been less than strictly observant of the obligations it imposes.
