All class and all factual information from Crissie to support her points. When exactly did media stop reporting facts and simply make it up as they go reporting personal opinion as news?

She realy takes him to town. Esp. his vulnerability regarding National Trust hosting events.

I think he got stuck in traffic that weekend and decided to use his paper to vent. Poor journalism.

It's all the rage now. Look at the Washington Post, NY Times, LA Times, etc. They do it literally daily.

HAHAHA!!!  Oh that's perfect!

I particularly liked that Simon Jenkins initially reported that ITU stood for International Telecommunications Union.  What a plonker.

Once you caught your breath, it occurred to you that finishing even a short triathlon might be harder than you thought. After a few "laps" you thought, "I can't believe I'm so out of shape."
