We have become used to reading headlines which distort the message of an article. The Telegraph reaches new levels.
This headline brooks no doubt! This is really worrying! How could we vote for this?
Except the article is not definite. Jeremy Warner starts by asking,
This is the end of the positive message.
The article then develops the issues raised in the cutting above. I’m not going to rebut Warner’s claims about this ‘equally plausible scenario’ nor even am I tackling his use of ‘equally plausible’.
Warner gives two scenarios: a positive (1st paragraph) and a negative (the remaining 16 paragraphs) but despite the massive imbalance he is, at least, open to the possibility of a positive outcome.
The headline though!
The free press?
